The names and faces have rotated frequently since the 2004 creation of the all-female Irish music singing group, but the essence of Celtic Woman remains robust. Current members Máiréad Carlin, Susan McFadden, Éabha McMahon and Tara McNeill will coat a combination of Celtic classics and modern songs with their angelic voices amid lush set pieces and orchestration. The group has often been described as “’Riverdance’ for the voice,” but anyone who has experienced a Celtic Woman show knows it’s much more about heart.

The Atlanta rapper long-ago known as Young Jeezy, dropped his eighth studio album, “Pressure,” in December.

Steven Curtis Chapman
As one of the most successful and prolific artists in contemporary Christian music history, Chapman has released more than 20 albums and scored a leading 58 Dove Awards (Christian music’s version of the Grammys). So when he says he’s performing a solo show focused on his hits, you know there is a massive catalog to draw from. The official tagline to Chapman’s tour is “A Night of Hits, History and Influences,” so expect plenty of stories from the genial musician and songwriter as well.
