Gaelic Girls

If St. Patrick’s Day merely whetted your whistle for more Gaelic cheer, then the timing of Celtic Woman's first appearance in Fort Lauderdale must be the luck o' the Irish. The band’s itinerary for March 17 included ABC's Live with Regis and Kelly in the morning, CNN in the afternoon, and a sold-out performance at Radio City Music Hall that night. A PBS special turned touring phenomenon, Celtic Woman features five Irish female vocalists backed by an orchestra and chorus performing a mix of traditional Irish songs, contemporary compositions, classics, and originals. Celtic Woman performs at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts (201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale). Tickets cost $29.50 to $59.50. Call 954-462-0222, or visit
