But, well, when Máiréad comes back it would be weird to have a second fiddle,r but since Tara is also a singer and harpist - who knows if she'll be the fifth girl we longed for for so long? Like Alex first replaced Lisa K for a short time and then finally Órlagh.

That would be pretty cool.

I'm still rooting for Rebecca to sing full-time in Celtic Woman though.

I, too, assume Máiréad will be back - and I am very happy about that. But I think we will nonetheless consider Tara a new member, right? After all, Deirdre and Hayley were also only "fillers" and are still rightfully beloved. Tara is about to start recording her debut album on Monday, by the way (I checked her twitter) and I assume her collaboration with Celtic Woman will be a great kind of advert. As long as Mái will come back I am very happy - I am always keen about new CWuties! I just don't want them to leave... and Anúna always brought great girls to CW. According to her homepage, Tara was the harpist on the Destiny special!

OMG, YES! That's where I've seen her! It was driving me CRAZY! Thank you!

In this clip of My Land from Destiny, she makes a few appearances:

This  would  seem  to  be  the  first  departure from  CW's   "unspoken, unofficial"  policy of not  promoting  from within. Just  interesting  to  note.  Another  thoughtful(and  needed)   Meavian  touch  I  think.   Smiley

Tara's definitely very gorgeous! Kiss



I wonder if she can skip and dance around stage while playing the violin like Máiréad does? Smiley

This is Tara McNeill.

Thanks Breno.

I've been looking all over at random pictures of Irish violinists / fiddlers, but I didn't come across her yet.

Were you familiar with her before this? I ask because if you were on a scavenger hunt like I was, I'd love to know where / how you found her. It will hopefully make my future scavenger hunts more efficient.  Wink

I looked for her videos after Destiny and she is a gorgeous singer! We shared our thoughts about her in Brazilian group, everyone wanting her to be a CW, and....! We were predicting the future. Smiley)

If Máiréad comes back, I want Tara to stay as a singer and harpist - she's SO good!

I absolutely agree! We'd actually go back to the original structure! And Rebecca is obviously busy otherwise!

You know what also could be? That Máiréad will stay with Celtic Woman, but not full time. She's now touring LotD, probably because of it's 20th Anniversary, and then she's making her album and her fiddle line... and she's a bit older than the other girls. Who knows, she might become a kind of part-time member, with Tara 'filling in'?

I really hope the general fan base feels the same way.

Celtic Woman survived the loss of all 4 original singers, but I'm afraid of Mairead leaves, a big chunk of the long-time and newer fans will leave too.

I'll follow Mairead Nesbitt anywhere, but if Tara's the new girl, she's also getting my full support. We've been through so much change over the last (almost) 12 years. I hope that as much as it will hurt if Mairead leaves or operates on a reduced schedule, the fans will embrace Tara.

I just hope we'll get some official news on the new recording and the new (of only part-time) girl!

If Mairead leaves, I'm sorry I never got to meet her.

If it's part time, it still greatly reduces the chances I'll ever get to meet her, but I hope I'll find a way.

Tara retweeted CW tweets about the South Africa tour.

She also retweeted the tweet about the upcoming recording. Maybe that's a hint that she is involved. Maybe even as a principle or at least as harpist

Capt. Davey over on the Mairead Forum said that "he saw this coming" , so it looks  like Tara may indeed be the new CW fiddler. I need to see her perform on stage before forming an opinion.

Well, it's official, folks:

https://www.facebook.com/maireadnesbittcelticviolinist/posts/1757393424539932:0

Hi Everyone
After taking a bit of a weekend away, I came back only to realize that many of you have seen some press which may have you wondering what I’m up to… so it’s obviously time to tell you.
I’ve made the personal decision to take time off from Celtic Woman to work on some really special projects that are close to me. At the end of this month I’ll be launching my PledgeMusic campaign and I’m hoping you’ll follow me on my journey while I record my brand new album, HIBERNIA. This has been a long time in the making and I’m anxiously awaiting these recording sessions with symphony orchestra, as well as some very dear friends, family and special guests.
Also, now that I have this time away, I’ll be recording an album this fall with my very musical family (in a very unique setting!) as well as introducing my very own Celtic Violin line.
I’ll be sharing these details with you directly as the plans unfold.
I’m really looking forward to the months ahead. I’ll miss my Celtic Woman family while I embark on these projects but it will make it that much more special when I share the stage with them again!
Our fans are second to none & are like family to me. Thank you all so much for your support and I’m looking forward to seeing you all very soon with ?#?Hibernia? & again down the road with Celtic Woman Tour.
With love,
Máiréad


I'm sad to see her step away from Celtic Woman, but happy for what lies ahead for her.

Though Mairead and Celtic Woman may go their separate ways, I look forward to following both of them on whatever is to come.
