Forum Questions & Comments / Due to lack of interest in Forums
« Last post by GlenS on August 21, 2018, 11:05:35 PM »
Im looking at letting the solo Forums close when there domain names expire and just use the all New CWF.net let me know what your thoughts are about this below is when the domains expire

Mairead C      3-19-19

Susan           3-19-19

Eabha           10-24-18

Tara             8-7-20

There is always things that might come up that would have me keep the solo forums running. Some of the things would be a member boom and users posting. The all New Celtic Woman Forum.net has been up and running for 6 months and has 52 members and over 900 posts and no games board but the new forum is as up to date as it can be and it is offering some extra's that the old CWF isn't offering or going to much less have a admin to run it. So please post your thoughts on this here

Thanks
Glen

Celtic Woman / Welcome the new girl Megan Walsh
« Last post by GlenS on August 17, 2018, 09:46:43 AM »
This below is Celtic Womans release

We are delighted to announce the newest member of Celtic Woman, please welcome Megan Walsh.

 Megan will make her debut performance with us in our upcoming TV Special and on our new album to be released later this year.

 Megan is 21 years of age and from County Meath, Ireland. She has studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London and as well as being a classically trained soprano, she is equally proficient in many other genres.

 Megan is a seasoned performer, having been on stage from a very young age. In 2014, at age 17, she won "The Soloist" competition with the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland. This journey took her initially to the USA, where she sang on the main stage of the famous Carnegie Hall, New York.

Letters to and From Susan / Thank You Susan
« Last post by CWazytom on August 12, 2018, 11:21:46 AM »
Dear Susan,

Thank you for all your lovely music with Celtic Woman and in your #17weeks17songs project during the Destiny tour.  Thank you as well for your warm presence on stage, and for being so nice to me at the two Meet and Greets I was lucky enough to attend.

I only got to see you live six times with Celtic Woman (so far, anyways) and met you only twice, but I can honestly say that those experiences were among my most cherished.  I will always remember the first time I saw you live on stage and the rush of emotions as I ran over to you excitedly during my first M+G.  No matter what the future holds, know that I will always be one of your fans.

Soon, you're going to be the Sky, the Dawn, and the Sun for someone opening their eyes on the world for the first time.  As you get ready to welcome that new life, I want to thank you, from the bottom of my heart for changing mine.

Congratulations to you and Anto!

Show Reviews! / Susan in Daniel O'Donnell's Rock 'n' Roll Show (2005)
« Last post by CWazytom on May 21, 2018, 10:11:17 PM »
Long before Susan was in Celtic Woman, she was a dancer in Daniel O'Donnell's DVD "Rock 'n' Roll Show" in 2005 (part of his Blue Jeans Tour).

Here's my recap of the DVD.

Song Selection

The show focuses on rock and roll songs from mostly the 50s and 60s, although there are some songs from the 70s too. Your enjoyment of the music may depend on what kind of music you grew up with and how much you enjoy people covering those songs. Even though these songs were before my time, I did grow up listening to a lot of 'oldies' radio and even watched a bunch of Lawrence Welk with my grandparents when I was younger. So I did have some exposure to classic rock and have heard most of the songs before. I'd say the covers are good, though not necessarily spectacular.


Susan

We saw some of Susan's graceful dancing skills in Voices of Angels and some more energetic dancing in Homecoming (and Emerald), you really haven't seen her dance until you've seen her in this DVD. There is some really fast-paced, high energy dancing and she does it very well.

She gets to show off her expressiveness in some of the close-ups. Like Reese Witherspoon, Susan is great at using her face as a storytelling device. She does have a lot of moments in this show when she looks like she could be a stunt double for Reese Witherspoon, just like in Legally Blonde the Musical.

There are a lot of costume changes, so we get to see Susan in several nice outfits.

Even though Susan isn't a principal performer or singer in the show, she does appear in quite a few of the songs. Even before the lights come up and the music starts playing, she walks out on stage by herself to open the show. She might do some backup singing in some of the songs while she's dancing, but I'm not sure.

Here are most of the tracks in which she appears on the DVD:

Come On Over to My Place
Oh Boy
When You Walk In The Room
Elvis Medley
Lipstick on Your Collar
Is This the Way to Amarillo
The Moon of Love Medley
Ole Man Trouble
At The Hop
Cliff Richard Medley
Ob-la-di Ob-la-da
Live Next Door to Alice
Let's Twist Again
Let's Dance Encore
Rock Around the Clock



My Favourites

My favourite number featuring Susan was The Moon of Love Medley. She has a lot of good closeups and even says a few lines.

Mary Duff is quite prevalent in the show and she does a great job. My favourite song is the production is The Carnival Is Over, which Daniel and Mary perform as a duet. The harmony is extremely well done! If I had been in the audience, I would have given two standing ovations during the show: one to Susan when she got her shout-out and one after The Carnival Is Over.

After Ob-la-di Ob-la-da, Susan and the other dancers get their shout-outs.

Susan does appear in the credits at the end.


Overall Impression

Overall, I though it was pretty good show. It had a good selection of songs. Even if 50s/60s classic rock isn't your thing, you'll still probably enjoy at least parts of it. It's mostly up-tempo songs, although it does have a good mix of slower songs too.

If there's one criticism I have is that it's a pretty long show. The running time is 2 hours and 40 minutes and that's just the show. There are no extras on the DVD. It's hard for me to get through the whole thing in one sitting.

If you're a massive Susan McFadden fan (like me), you should get this DVD. She's featured in quite a few of the songs, her dancing is impressive, and almost every time I see her, it makes me smile. If you or someone you know is also a fan of 50s/60s music, then you should definitely get this DVD.

Thanks for reading.

Susan forever!

Susan has to leave for a bit.

I hope everything's ok.

Let's show her support, but respect her privacy.

In the meantime, let's give a warm welcome back to Alex Sharpe!
