According to her forum, Máiréad will tour with LotD this September. So, it might be a short break. Who knows :/ I hope she'll return in time! I wonder if she will be on the new album?

I'm not sure if Mairead Nesbitt will be on the new album. I hope so.

I do know that Tara will be on the new album and I'm super-excited!

Well Tom, who are we to question Mairead`s decision like spoiled little kids? I`m SURE after 10 years of hectic schedules and THOUSANDS of miles of traveling the world, it`s time for a change. Can`t blame her. Her knees need a rest  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin.There has been NUMEROUS changes in the lineup over the years with people saying " NOOOO(fill in the blank)  can`t leave!. But I`ve seen Lisa Kelly, Lisa Lambe, Chloe, Meav, Lynn, Alex.....now Susan, Mairead C. and Eahba and the show is every bit as good as any I`ve see.....they put 110% into every show .IF they come to my area again...and I sure hope they will...I`ll be front row cheering as much as ever.

Well, Mairead has been playing with the group for about 12 years now (11 years touring with them).  After seeing them early this summer, I had an inkling that not long after this, Mairead might leave the group, either for a long break or permanently, as CW tours tend to be long and somewhat grueling.  After this long with one group (and with her level of talent and personal life), I am not exactly surprised she is leaving, but it isn't something I wanted to see.  Still, let's give Tara a chance here, as she adds the ability to play the harp as well as the violin (something that has been sorely missing since Orla left).

Check out this AMAZING tribute and rallying cry by moscapoet over on the Mairead Nesbitt forum:

Personally, I'm even more motivated out of my mind to support Mairead now!

Mairead gave us a little tour of the family home. She did some Q+A during the video.

One of the questions (as always), was whether or not she's coming back to Celtic Woman. The short answer is she doesn't know. Sounds like she's keeping an open mind about it.

Personally, I'm perfectly happy with all the great things she's getting to do out on her own and she's a pleasure regardless of who she's performing with.

She does plan to tour Hibernia in the US at some point.

Mairead also got a marriage proposal during the video. Lol.

Here's the 20-minute video for your viewing enjoyment:

If Máiréad did come back, Tara could be a principal singer and harpist for CW like Órla. That would be cool! Smiley

True. It would definitely be interesting. Personally, I don't think they would have 2 lead instrumentalists on tour at once (for cost reasons). They would probably have a 4th vocalist before a second instrumentalist.

Still, it's fun to dream of the possibilities and there's always a possibility they could have Mairead and Tara together for one night only on a CW DVD / PBS special.  Cheesy
