Celtic Woman / Celtic Woman Member Timeline
« on: March 24, 2018, 02:04:41 PM »
Celtic Woman Member Timeline

To document each of the leading performers in Celtic Woman and when each of them performed with the group.

A few of the start/end dates are best guesses based on when lineup changes were announced or start/end dates of tours.

It may not be standard practice to record temporary absences from a tour (medical leave, lineup swaps, etc.) as a break in membership, but that's the way I've been doing it.

The rendered timeline appears here (updated June 4, 2021):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celtic_Woman#Member_Timeline






Alex Sharpe

Key Dates:

    Dec 2007 - May 26, 2010

Originally filled in for Lisa Kelly while Lisa was on maternity leave (2008).
Then stepped in for Orla full time in 2009.

Left May 2010 (after the 1st leg of the SftH tour).

Mairead Carlin took over for Chloë originally. Chloë returned in 2020 to take over for Eabha during the Celebration.

Susan was scheduled to fill in for Chloë 6 times on the 2020 Celebration Tour (Mar 7, 13, 14, 27, 28, and 29, 2020). However, 4 of those shows (along with the rest of the tour) got postponed due to Coronavirus.

During the ANJ tour, and again during the "Believe" 2012 tour, Lisa took a break for the birth of her children.
  • In 2008, she was replaced by Alex Sharpe who later became a full-time member of Celtic Woman when Orla left.
  • Lisa was back in 2009 for the IoH tour. I based her 2009 return date on the first date of the IoH tour (Feb 13, 2009).
  • In Dec 2011, Lisa announced taking maternity leave and would not be participating in the 2012 Believe Tour (replaced by Susan McFadden)
  • Jan 5, 2012,  announced that Susan would be replacing her on the Believe Tour (Susan debuted with CW in February at Nashville, Tennessee for the kickoff of the "Believe" North American Tour and continued with the remaining tours in 2012.)



Lisa Lambe

Key Dates:

    Nov. 29, 2010 - 2014

    Lynn substituted for her from April - September 7, 2014
    Lisa Returned from November 23, 2014 - until the end of the year

Additional Notes:
  • In November 2010, Lynn Hilary announced she was leaving.
  • Feb 14, 2014: Announced that Lynn would be replacing Lisa Lambe while she was on LOA.
  • Lisa Lambe continued to perform on the Emerald Tour in February - March, 2014.  ... Thanks Tiffany :)
  • Wikipedia indicates that Lisa Lambe returned for two tours in the fall and winter of 2014. I'm not sure that she returned for the fall tour.



Lynn Hilary

Key Dates:

    Aug 17, 2007 - Nov. 12, 2010        (Started touring with ANJ on Oct 10, 2007, announced as a new member on Aug 17, 2007)
    Feb 14, 2014 - June 8, 2014       (Emerald, toured in place of Lisa Lambe, announced Feb 14, 2014, but first date back on tour was Mar 16, 2014)
    Sept 3-7, 2014                    (Emerald tour in Brazil)
    Apr 8, 2015 - May 23, 2015      (10th Anniversary Tour)

Lynn originally took over for Méav.

Piecing the dates together for Lynn has been quite challenging. Did I miss anything?



Mairéad Carlin

Key Dates:

    August 23, 2013 - January 13, 2021
   
    From May 3, 2015 - May 26 (leave to be with her dad, with Alex filling in for her)

She took over for Chloë.
On October 23, 2019, Mairéad wasn't able to perform in the 2nd act of the show due to illness.
On October 25, 2019, Mairéad was unable to perform and Celtic Woman performed with only 3 members.
On October 27, 2019, it was announced that Mairéad had to have surgery for appendicitis and would miss time from the European leg of the Ancient Land tour during recovery. Susan took over for her while she recovered. Mairead Carlin returned to the tour on November 10, 2019 for the start of the UK leg of the Ancient Land tour.
On January 13, 2021, Mairéad announced she was moving on from Celtic Woman.
On June 4, 2021, Celtic Woman announced she had departed Celtic Woman earlier in the year.

Note:
    During the 2007 ANJ tour, Méav was featured Apr 11 - May 3

Lynn took over for Meav after Meav's primary runs with the group.

Meav later became the vocal directory for Celtic Woman.


Notes about the dates used:
  • 2005 - 2006, Méav was on mat leave (Deirdre filled in). If anyone has the date Deirdre officially took over for Méav in 2005, please let me know. *** For now, I used the day before Deirdre's start date (Deirdre started on July 20, 2005, based on that being the first date of the first US tour).
  • I based Méav's return date in 2006 on when the ANJ special was recorded. If someone has a more accurate date, please let me know.
  • In 2007, following the filming of Celtic Woman's Christmas DVD at the Helix, Dublin, Méav left Celtic Woman to concentrate on her solo career.
  • Méav later featured as a guest soloist on the CW Christmas album Home for Christmas (the first time Méav had appeared with CW since she left the group in 2007).
  • Méav was also featured on the subsequent CW PBS special, "Home for Christmas", which was recorded on 7 August 2013.
  • I based Méav's start date for the 10th Anniversary Tour as March 6 based on her Wikipedia page. If anyone has further supporting evidence, that would be great.



Megan Walsh

Key Dates:

     Active: August 16, 2018 - Present



Muirgen O'Mahony

Key Dates:

     Active: June 4, 2021 - Present



Órla Fallon

Key Dates:

    September 15, 2004 - Dec 9, 2008

Alex Sharpe took over for her.

Wikipedia says she left in 2009, but other sources say she left in December 2008 (after ACC). Given that one of the articles about her leaving was dated December 10th, I'm inclined to believe that December 9, 2008 is correct.



Susan McFadden

Key Dates:

    January 5, 2012 - August 12, 2018
   
    From March 11-23, 2018, Susan had to take a leave from the tour due to the passing of her aunt. She returned March 24, 2018.

    From Oct 27, 2019 - Nov 10, 2019, Susan filled in for Mairéad Carlin who was recovering from appendicitis. Susan filled in for her.

Susan was scheduled to fill in for Chloë 6 times on the 2020 Celebration Tour (Mar 7, 13, 14, 27, 28, and 29, 2020). Unfortunately, 4 of those shows (along with the rest of the tour) got postponed due to Coronavirus.

Susan originally took over for Lisa Kelly.

HomeComing on Tour / Re: Homecoming Tour Lineup Change
« on: March 24, 2018, 01:06:21 PM »
Susan McFadden returns to the Homecoming tour today!

Last night was Alex's last show filling in for Susan. Alex's brief stint during the Homecoming tour was March 11 - 23, 2018. I'll update the Celtic Woman timeline.

It would have been nice to see Alex on tour with Celtic Woman for once, but I wasn't in one of those lucky audiences.

Alex is a quick study. She learned her part on short notice and apparently fit in very well with the rest of the girls, some of which she hadn't performed with before. She also learned the dance routine with Carl within an hour or two.

Alex's stage presence was reportedly as great as ever. One day, I hope I get to experience her immense talent in person.

Let's all send our thanks to the amazing Alex Sharpe for all her great work filling in for Sue!

I'm really looking forward to seeing Sue live again in a few weeks!

P.S. Yes, Alex got to use Sue's bus bunk:

Glenn & Ronan / Adele Medley
« on: March 24, 2018, 12:54:51 PM »
Here's an article from a year and a half ago that gives some background on the Adele medley that essentially kickstarted their careers:

https://www.rte.ie/entertainment/2016/1007/822255-glenn-and-ronan/

I think the show I saw on March 17, 2016 may have been the first time they performed the song on the Destiny tour. They had just returned to the tour after doing their show with Ellen, only a short time after their video went viral.

Chloe Agnew / Like An Angel (Lyrics)
« on: March 24, 2018, 01:12:47 AM »
Here are the lyrics as far as I can tell, as determined by listening to the song.

Note: the lyrics and song are original works by Joshua Spacht.


He holds her close to him, sunset in their eyes.
Final embers of light. Running out of time.
The sky begins to dance, putting on a show
As twilight lingers in the valley below.

So they linger and he whispers...

"In my eyes, you look like an angel
Could it be I've seen a glimpse of heaven
Come the night, come shadows and darkness,
'Cause I'll be by the side of an angel."

She holds his face in her hands
(whispers in his ear)
"How I've loved you throughout
The passing of each year
The days grow shorter I know,
So I take every chance.
To always linger when you ask me to dance."

So they linger and she whispers...

"In my eyes, you look like an angel
And I know you are a gift from heaven
Through this life, I won't fear the darkness
'Cause I'll be by the side of an angel."

Oh!!!

He reaches for her hand
Twilight in her eyes
Final embers of life. Running out of time.
And though she can't rise to dance,
He hums her favourite song,
And slowly sways until the last light is gone

And he lingers, yes he lingers,
Oh, he lingers, and he whispers...

"In my eyes, you look like an angel
Could it be I've seen a glimpse of heaven
Come the night. come shadows and darkness,
I'll be by the side of an angel."

Ohh!!!

(You are my angel)

<La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la-la>
<La la la la la la la la la la la la la la>

He holds her close to him...



Additional Notes:

I'm not sure about the words in angle brackets < >

At the end I'm not sure if she's humming "la" or "na."

Punctuation and line breaks are probably pretty messed up as I'm not used to writing lyrics.

Any corrections while we wait for something more official, please let me know. Please just reply without quoting the post with the lyrics. That way they can just stay in one place and can edit the 'master copy' as necessary instead of having a dozen quotes floating around the forum with partially correct lyrics. Thanks.

Chloe Agnew / The Thing About You (Chloë's new EP)
« on: March 24, 2018, 01:08:25 AM »
Chloë release 2 albums prior to her time in Celtic Woman:
- Chloë (2002)
- Walking In The Air (2004)

Since she moved on from Celtic Woman, she released an EP called Heartstrings (2016), which was (and still is) available at Chloë's tour shows and through some of her online concerts.

Chloë has taken her time, patiently experimenting with different styles and sounds. She wanted to find something she could be proud of, while remaining true to herself.


Record Label

On July 18, 2017, Chloë announced (excitedly) that she had signed with a record label and was working on a new album:
https://www.facebook.com/ChloeAgnew/videos/1790823137599551/

Her new label is called:

    Spachtula Music Group



Like An Angel

In 2017, Chloë released a single called Like An Angel.

- Written and produced by Joshua Spacht.
- Additional production and mix by Chris Bevins.
- Vocal production and engineering by Scott Frankfurt.
- Mastered at Georgetown Masters.
- Orchestrated by Joshua Spacht and Thomas Grassi.
- Orchestra recorded at Ocean Way, Nashville (conducted by Joshua Spacht).

Here is Chloë's release of the single Like An Angel:
https://open.spotify.com/track/7kP3OHFLiUJfeI6d1Oi1cY




For those interested, here's Joshua Spacht's original recording, before Chloë was involved:
https://soundcloud.com/joshuaspacht/like-an-angel


It does sound REALLY good with him singing it too, but Chloë's voice adds a whole new dimension of special. Chloë says he wrote the song with someone like her in mind.


Status

In 2017, she finished recording songs for her new EP. I believe it's 5 or 6 tracks, including Like An Angel.

Chloë is just going through the process of tweaking the masters. The EP will most likely release this year (2018).

The wait has been a long one, but I know the wait will be worth it. She is a very special performer.  <3

Hayley Westenra / Hayley's New Album?
« on: March 24, 2018, 12:24:34 AM »
Hayley's most recent international studio album was Hushabye (2013).

However, Hayley has been dropping hints on social media for quite a while that she's working on new material. She's recently been spending quite a bit of time in LA, including time there in recording studios.

It's believed that she's working on new songs, but it's not known how far along she is in that process or when the music might get released.

Voices of Angels / My first Celtic Woman Meet and Greet
« on: March 23, 2018, 11:07:32 PM »
--- Adapted from original post on April 21, 2017.  I did some editing and added some notes, so feel free to re-read here if you read my post on the other forums. ---

I have been dreaming of meeting Celtic Woman for years!

On April 19th, 2017, in Erie, PA, my dream finally came true!

Prior to that M+G the only former CW I had met were:
- Chloe (August 2016, Shelbyville, Indiana)
- Mairead Nesbitt (April 11, 2017, Shea's PAC in Buffalo as part of Rocktopia tour)

We were taken to a meeting room. The girls were a few minutes later than expected, so the staff were looking around for the girls before the M+G. The girls ended up pulling up at the side of the road in a car. We could see them get out of the car through the externally facing window of the meeting room. They rushed in to the building because it was drizzling. There had been sudden downpours most of the day, but it was just a drizzle as they came in.

The girls recognized me and I smiled excitedly and waved.

There were 12 of us at the M+G. There was a large table in the middle of the room and we were gathered around. The girls  were lined up against one of the walls. There were pictures on the wall behind the girls, but it didn't look too unseemly. The lighting through the window made it a bit difficult to decide whether or not to use a flash. It turned out well enough without it, I suppose.

They decided to start the line at the end of the table opposite me, so I was second last in line. Note: That was probably a good position to be in. It allows one to try take a tiny bit more with the girls time without holding up the rest of the line.

I was really excited and a bit nervous waiting in line. That was to be expected I suppose before the moment I had been dreaming of for so long.

With a couple of people until my turn, I waved over Sett and the PBS rep and told them how to use my camera and gave them the cards I had made for the girls. The cards had pictures of the girls on the front. I painstakingly searched Google for weeks for the perfect picture for each of the girls (for Tara, I picked a picture from her first concert with Celtic Woman, on stage with 3 other girls and having a great time). Inside each card, I had a picture of a really picturesque place in Canada that was important to me for one reason or another, which I explained in the card. Each girl got a different picture and story that tied back to how much their music meant to me. I wrote that no place in the world I've ever been was as beautiful as the way they sound. I wrote that I could never give them anything to properly thank them for all they've done for me, so instead I donated to their respective charities (a significant amount) because I knew that would mean as much to them as their music means to me. <3

I had rehearsed a few times leading up to the M+G. During 'rehearsal' I usually ended up tearing up or just sobbing with happiness. The actual M+G was slightly different than I had visualized, but not far off.

When it was my turn, I sort of giddily made my way over to Sue the same way I did when I met Chloe and was totally overwhelmed. The girls smiled and giggled a bit. I hugged Sue and told her I loved the way she sang, that she was a joy to watch, and that I felt every note. She seemed appreciative.

Next was Mairead Carlin. I wasn't crying but I was so close to it they could tell I was emotional. Mairead asked me if everything was OK. It took me a moment to speak because I thought that was so sweet of her. I told her she had epic range and power. I meant to say that she was breathtaking. I ended up getting overwhelmed when I looked into her eyes and just said she was incredible instead. It achieved the intent, I suppose. She commented on the forum buttons I was wearing (thanks Glen) and noted that they were new. I really couldn't speak much for a bit because I was so shy and excited, so I just smiled at her for a bit.

I'm not sure what was going through the head of the tour manager, but I suppose he's seen it all before.

Next was Tara. The moment she smiled at me I forgot everything I was going to say. I hugged her right away. There was about 10 seconds of awkward silence before I could gather my thoughts. I managed fragments of what I wanted to say to her. Something to the effect of "you're amazing and nothing makes me happier than when I see you perform." She said I had been really sweet to her and she really appreciated all my support to her from the moment she joined Celtic Woman. Overwhelmed by her kindness and my joy and finally meeting her, I hugged her a second time.

Last was Eabha. I was still a bit extra-emotional from Tara. I'm not the best at reading people, but it seemed like Eabha was thinking "uh...I've got to follow that?" I got out parts of what I wanted to say. I said her voice was unique (I meant to add enchanting and that there was nothing else like it, but I think I just said she was incredible, about the only word that wasn't eluding me that day, it seemed). I added that Sean N'Os couldn't ask for a better ambassador than her. The girls all though that was sweet and all said "awww" in a very adorable way. I hugged Eabha.

I got 2 pictures with the girls. One was blurry because my camera is terrible. The other was a bit darker than the test pic I took just before my turn in line, but it was good anyways and I was able to brighten the photo in an editor without too much difficulty.

I thanked the girls and smiled at them before walking off. As the girls left back to the car outside, Sett said he would give the girls my cards (and he did).

I probably had 2-3 minutes with the girls. My perception of time was a bit impaired with excitement, but it was definitely longer than the 30 seconds I was expecting. I suspect I wouldn't have had as much time had I been earlier in the line or had there been more people at the M+G.

I'll never forget the night I finally met those girls that have meant so much to me.

In about three weeks, almost a year after I met them for the first time, I finally get to meet them again. Hopefully I'll be able to communicate a bit more effectively this time, but considering almost all my Meet and Greets so far have been an exhibition of crippling shyness, awkwardness, and overwhelming joy, I expect this Meet and Greet to unfold in a similar way. I'm just looking forward to seeing the girls again and showing them, even if I haven't the words to express it, how much I appreciate everything they do. <3

HomeComing / Re: Homecoming on Youtube
« on: March 23, 2018, 10:23:31 PM »
I'm a proud owner of the Homecoming DVD.

1495
Tonight, I watched the Celtic Thunder X PBS special, partly because the group is Sharon Browne's baby and partly because some of the other people on the forums are fans.

Mini-Review

I thought it was good. Their style and song choices are less up my alley than Celtic Woman. Just not my cup of Barry's Tea (#ShamelessPlug). I preferred their previous special, Legacy, to this one, but they did do some songs I really enjoyed. From the Ground Up and May the Road Rise to Meet You were good harmony numbers.

I'm not a huge fan of what they did with The Voice, but I'll give them credit for trying to do it differently. I'm sure their version of Streets of London sounds fine ... unless you've hear Mairead Carlin sing it, because once you've heard it from her, nothing else compares.

I really like their fiddler, Nicole Hudson. She's of course very talented. She doesn't move around as often as the Celtic Woman fiddlers, but she always looks like she's having a great time and when I see her smiling off the left of the screen, I smile too.  :D  By extension, The Devil Went Down to Georgia and the band instrumental before the finale were among my favourite moments of the show.

My favourite moment was the finale, Ireland's Call. They always do a fantastic job with that song. Lots of fun and great harmony!



Pledge Breaks

One of the same hosts that does the Celtic Woman pledge breaks was doing this one. She's alright. I wouldn't call it highly inspired promotional work, but I suppose it was adequate. She pronounced their names correctly. I guess O'Dwyer is easier to pronounce than "Tara" or "Woman?" I dunno... It wasn't quite at the same level as the person doing the pledge breaks for The Bloody Irish. THAT was impressive work.

They had Ryan Kelly and Michael O'Dwyer in the studio this time ( they didn't have Celtic Woman in the studio during the Homecoming airing :'( ). Michael I think was a bit nervous. Ryan was pretty cool.


The Road Ahead

Celtic Thunder apparently has a tour show within half an hour of me this fall. It's super-convenient location-wise, but...

... It looks like I'll be going to a LOT of shows in the second half of the year (possibly 10 in the span of 4 months). If I have to choose between seeing Celtic Thunder, Chloë, Amy Rivard, CaraNua, Lisa Lambe, Lisa Kelly, Mairead Nesbitt, Orla, or Chloe Lowery, those boys are definitely getting the short end of that stick. I think I'll leave it until the last minute and try to get a nosebleed seat depending on what happens with the other shows.


Overall

Overall, the show was entertaining. Their performances get my head bobbing and toes tapping. I've got nothing against Celtic Thunder, my heart will forever and always belong to Celtic Woman. <3

Sounds like a fantastic St. Patrick's Day show!  That's wonderful that you got to meet Chloe again, especially since you weren't sure if it would work out or not before you got there.  She seems so sweet  :)

Thanks!

She's very sweet. She knows how to make her Chlovërs feel special.

Other Musicians / The Ukeladies
« on: March 21, 2018, 10:56:18 PM »
The Ukeladies (Mary Bee, Kate Steinway, and Dani W Carter) are 3 musicians currently based in LA. They used to be called "Mary, Kate, No Ashley." That was cute, but somehow The Ukeladies seems a bit catchier.  :D

They met at The Songwriting School of Los Angeles a few years ago, which also where they met Chloë Agnew. In 2016, they did some online shows with Chloë and they've done a few shows with Chloë since then as well. I tuned in to one of their online shows (to see Chloë, of course), but I ended up getting to know these wonderful ladies as a result. If it wasn't for them, I probably wouldn't have met Chloë in 2016.

I credit them for getting Chloë into doing online shows, which are great for her fans that can't always go to Chloë's tour shows. I saw Chloë's very first online concert before I saw the Ukeladies, but I recall that Kate was instrumental in helping Chloë with her early online shows.

Like Celtic Woman (especially Chloë and Tara), they're absolutely adorable. Also like Celtic Woman, the group likes to use harmony in their arrangements. They don't have the fancy in-ears, audio mixing equipment, and technicians that Celtic Woman does on tour. But all things considered, I think they sound great together.

Here's a promotional video they did for one of their tours last year:

Here's a video of them performing "Kiss the Girl" from that tour:

Here's "Better and Better"

Those girls and their music was there for me several times when I needed it. In 2016, they did a video with Chloë for me. This is their cover of The Rose:

There are very few performers in this world that touch me as deeply as Celtic Woman. The Ukeladies are one such group. They are very sweet and are great at interacting with their fans. They're not one of those groups that has millions of followers on social media, though they surely deserve such attention. Like Celtic Woman, they have an uncanny knack for doing something special exactly when I need someone to Raise Me Up.

There are other groups out there with talented singers that sound fantastic. But aside from Celtic Woman (and acts involving their former members), there's no group more special to me than The Ukeladies. <3

I like your pictures!

P.S. Hermione is my favourite character from Harry Potter and Chloë is pretty much my favourite singer.  ;)

10 Year Anniversary Tour / Re: Ups and downs

Just after I got to see this concert, all I wanted to do is to find Meav and talk to her, but it seemed unfair that all the meet-&-greet tickets were sold out. I don't think there were enough. :( And then, daddy just took me home after allowing someone else to give my gift to her. :'( It was unfair. So, I'm trying to scream louder than thunder at those greedy goons to "Ditch the money for my heart". I wish I could do my thing over.

Aww. I'm sorry you didn't get to talk to Méav on that tour.

If misery loves company, I was out of the country the week that Méav was on the tour for multiple shows within 2 hours of where I live. That was pretty devastating. I feel your pain Kimberly, and I'm sorry. I hope we both get to meet her one day.

It looks like Mairead is going to be part of a musical soundtrack of The Little Prince!

Excerpt from original post:

So excited that Nick and my gorgeous friend Jamie Reid have asked me to sing for their new musical soundtrack of The Little Prince- playing the part of The Little Prince himself. I can’t say much more but I will tell you the other leads are Hollywood Royalty and I’m SO excited. Hint: #thegreatestshowman #lesmiserables

Hmm. My guess (without having looked up everyone else in both casts), is Hugh Jackman.
