Biography

Dublin, Ireland

Celtic Woman is a musical group from Dublin, Ireland comprising five women with a repertoire that ranges from traditional Celtic tunes to modern songs. Current members include the four vocalists Máiréad Carlin, Susan McFadden, Lisa Lambe, Lynn Hilary, and the violinist Máiréad Nesbitt. Deirdre Shannon sang with the group during Ní Mhaolchatha’s pregnancy in 2005-2006. Hayley Westenra, a New Zealander of Irish descent, sang with the group during its 2006-2007 tour as its sixth member. Méav Ní Mhaolchatha and Órla Fallon were two of the original members of the group, though both have since left to pursue other projects.

In 2007, Ní Mhaolchatha left the group to focus on her solo career and was replaced by Hilary. Sharpe initially joined the group to fill in for Kelly who was on maternity leave, and later became a full member as a replacement for Fallon (who left to spend more time with family and record a solo work).

Since then, both Alex Sharpe and Lynn Hilary have left, making way for Lisa Lambe.

In 2013, Lisa Kelly left to pursue a teaching career at a Voice Academy she started up that year with her husband, making way for Susan McFadden for the 2013 Believe Tour.

In 2013, Chloë Agnew left to pursue solo work, making way for Máiréad Carlin.

Celtic Woman was recorded on September 15, 2004 for PBS Television in The United States at The Helix, Dublin to a sell-out audience. The show was organized by show producer Sharone Browne and musical director and composer David Downes, and produced by Dave Kavanagh.
