I watched them with a friend during the Thanksgiving weekend.

Wasn't sure I was going to like it (thought it might be too "Irish" for me).

Loved it!

Absolutely gorgeous voices, pretty (and very talented) ladies, and lovely settings.

You can't get "too Irish" - the music is always infectious, touching, and accessible to everyone. But the presentation can go over the top, which sometimes happens with River Dance, Celtic Thunder and the Three Priests. Also, there is a tendency for these groups to play off Catholic standards (Panis Angelicus) and Christmas carols (O Holy Night seems to be the favorite).

You have to give credit, therefore, to the Celtic Women as the most musical of the groups. They harmonize wonderfully and they keep the Disney production values to a minimum. It's also the best mix of Irish music among these groups.
