Thread Name: Lip-synching: Art or Rip-off?
Subject: RE: Lip-synching: Art or Rip-off?
I just saw Celtic Woman in concert in Atlanta at The Fox THeater, and I truly believe the whole production was a lip sync fest from the voices to the violin, to even the insurments. It went off MEGA Flawlessly but the voices never strained or showed vibrato at the appropriate points. I have actually WRITTEN to Celtic Woman about this and JUST recieved a response and they have written me this. They Deny it whole heartedly. If I am in the wrong I am megaly blown away. Here is what the wrote:

I'm sorry you feel this way, but all of our performers perform live every night. Celtic Woman was conceived as a vehicle to showcase the vocal and musical talents of some of the best performers in Ireland as live each and every night. A lot of work goes into each show, both on stage and off stage to ensure that the show looks and sounds right, vocally, musically and technically. All of the people you see on stage are proficient at their craft, and use their abilities each night to bring the show to life. Mairead, like the other musicians plays her fiddle, and the solo singers, like the choir, sing live.

I hope this has been of help,

Celtic Woman.
