Celtic Woman is an Irish quintet consisting of four vocalists (currently Chloë Agnew, Lynn Hilary, Lisa Kelly and Alex Sharpe) and fiddler Máiréad Nesbitt. The group was formed in 2004 by executive producer Dave Kavanagh and musical director/composer David Downes (who is well known for his work on “Riverdance”). Since its founding, Celtic Woman has been a resounding success all over the world. Between their Christmas CD, “A Christmas Celebration,” and their “A New Journey” CD, the group has been #1 on the Billboard World Music charts a whopping 95 weeks in a row.
