Celtic Woman has been called the "Riverdance for the voice." Truly, the music of this all-woman Irish group embodies the spirit of Ireland, a land rich in traditional song and culture, but also one that is very much a part of the modern world. Celtic Woman began in 2004 and currently consists of singers Éabha McMahon, Mairéad Carlin and Megan Walsh as well as violinist Tara McNeill. Since its initial performance on PBS, Celtic Woman has gone on to release 20 albums and go on multiple tours in the United States and abroad.
An Unexpected Phenomenon
Who could have predicted that a one-time event that brought together five Irish women would turn into a group that has toured the world and released 20 albums? That's the incredible story of Celtic Woman. The original group of Celtic Woman musicians had never met one another when Celtic Woman creators, David Downes, Sharon Browne and David Kavanagh brought them together for a single performance. However, the original performance, which aired on PBS, created such interest among TV watchers that a permanent version of the Celtic Woman group was born. The group has been recording albums and touring ever since.
