Celebrity Traveller: Celtic Woman's Susan McFadden

6 August 2015

International music sensation Celtic Woman returns to Australia in 2015 with a concert tour celebrating the group’s 10th anniversary. Flight Centre found time to catch up with one of its members, the gorgeous Susan McFadden, who told us all about her travel experiences.

"Definitely Sydney, because it had a really good mix of city life and beach life, and I found everyone to be very optimistic and healthy; everyone had a really nice outlook on life. We stayed on Darling Harbour and it was beautiful to wake up every morning to the sun shining on the water," Susan said when we asked about her favourite place in Australia.

It was a decade ago that Celtic Woman first introduced millions of new fans to the group's fresh fusion of Irish musical tradition, contemporary song craft and state-of-the-art stage production. The 10th Anniversary World Tour showcases four gifted Irish women – three world-class vocalists and a brilliant Celtic violinist – whose talent and charisma bring centuries of musical and cultural tradition to vibrant life.

When talking about a recent Celtic Woman tour in Brazil, Susan said: "The people were just wonderful; very warm and with a great sense of humour, which made them a little bit like the Irish. The food was fantastic and the nightlife was brilliant – great music and a sense of free spirit all around."

Why does Florence appeal so much to Susan, the sister of pop sensation Brian McFadden? What’s her dream bucket list experience? Why did she walk out of a McDonalds in Germany? And where would she spend a weekend if it were her last on earth? Find out more in this instalment of Flight Centre’s Celebrity Traveller.
