"Celtic Woman – Ancient Land" will premiere on the Arkansas Educational Television Network Sunday, Nov. 25, at 6 p.m. Filmed at the enchanting 19th century Johnstown Castle in Wexford, Ireland, this new PBS special features stunning music from Celtic Woman's latest album "Ancient Land," along with a selection of their timeless classics.
Showcasing the fiddle playing of Tara McNeill and the voices of Mairead Carlin and Éabha McMahon, "Ancient Land" also introduces the newest member of Celtic Woman, 21-year-old Megan Walsh.
Joining Celtic Woman will be a choir and Irish dancers, as well as an orchestra and some of Ireland's finest musicians playing an array of Celtic instruments, including Uilleann pipes, whistles, percussion and bagpipes.
Celtic Woman will be appearing at the Arc Best Performing Arts Center in Fort Smith as part of the UA Fort Smith Season of Entertainment Tuesday, April 23, at 7:30 p.m. The AETN Foundation has a limited number of tickets to this performance available as thank-you gifts.

For a donation of $150 the donor will receive a ticket to the Meet & Greet, as well as the concert. Donations may be made by calling 800-662-2386.
