Celtic Woman in 2012.

Celtic Woman’s new show, “Believe,” features the all-female singing group performing classic Irish tunes, pop anthems and inspirational songs, under the musical direction of David Downes. Making their first appearances in Utah are Lisa Lambe and Susan McFadden, the latter replacing Lisa Kelly while Kelly is on maternity leave. Lambe, a red-headed Dublin native, said she was welcomed like a sister when she joined the group in December 2010, so “it’s nice to return the favor and help someone new,” she said of McFadden. The group is known for its harmonies, but Lambe will have the spotlight for at least three solos, including during “A Spaceman Came Travelling” from “Believe” and “Dulaman,” the Irish word for seaweed and a song from the group’s second album, “A New Journey.” Lambe is excited about the group’s tribute to Broadway. “I get to perform ‘Circle of Life,’ ” she said. “I get to pretend I’m Simba for a few minutes.”
