Celtic Woman
Hobby Center, April 13

Four wholesome Irish lasses still riding the residual popularity of the early-2000s Riverdance craze -- as seen on PBS, etc. -- Celtic Woman was designed to appeal to the millions of sons and daughters of Erin, and of course those who are Irish at heart; you know, people who will forever get misty-eyed upon hearing "Danny Boy" no matter how many times they hear it.

Mixing traditional Celtic tunes with pop production values has turned out to be more profitable than anyone could have possibly imagined: Celtic Woman's latest album, Emerald: Musical Gems (which in fact includes "Danny Boy"), marks the group's eighth straight time to debut at No. 1 on Billboard's World Music Albums chart. So don't even try to deny it: the pipes, the pipes are calling... CHRIS GRAY
