ARTIST OVERALL RATINGS
Celtic Woman is the most successful female vocal group in classical crossover. They were conceived by Riverdance musical director, David Downes in 2004. They began as a group of five solo Irish singers put together by Downes and Sharon Browne. Over the years, the membership has undergone several changes that have seen six members come and go; the project has involved a total of eleven female artists, and all have been Irish (the only exception was Hayley Westenra's brief membership in 2006 for one album and tour). The success of the group can largely be put down to their unique sound and polished production in the studio and on stage. Their repertoire ranges from celtic and pop to classical, putting their sugary stamp on what is mostly standard material, with a few contemporary songs thrown in. Celtic Woman is very sweet and inoffensive in image and sound and will appeal to the fans of the lightest side of classical and pop.
