Ever heard of a musical group called the Celtic Woman? They are an all-female Irish musical ensemble imagined and created by David Kavanagh, Sharon Browne and David Downes. The latter is the former musical director of the Irish stage show Riverdance, so you know he’s an expert when it comes to Irish music and culture.
For the group Celtic Woman, he and his colleagues recruited five Irish female musicians to play a one-of-a-kind repertoire that ranged from traditional Celtic tunes to modern songs; vocalists Chloë Agnew, Órla Fallon, Lisa Kelly and Méav Ní Mhaolchatha, and fiddler Máiréad Nesbitt. And although they now sound like they’ve been performing together their entire lives, the women had never met each other before that moment.
But the chemistry that existed between them was obvious from day one. Not only do their voices perfectly blend together, but they also have matching personalities. They are friends not only colleagues, and the special bond that exists between them is visible on stage.
Take a look at one of their top performances and you’ll see what we’ve been talking about here. If you like what you hear, don’t forget to share this with all of your friends and family online.
