"Get people talking, and thinking, about Celtic Woman" - AWG

Sounds like cult behaviour, AWG. ;-)

I gotta agree with many here - they're pretty, sing nicely, and are produced within an inch of the music's life. The one show I saw seemed melodramatic and as far removed from trad music as Riverdance is from old fashioned stepdance. Nothing wrong with either, as they please large audiences. I just ain't part of that audience: prefer my folk/trad music a little cleaner. I want to hear the voices and instruments, not some sound man's creation.

A suggestion, AWG: have a listen to some of the many, many singers and players you'll find discussed on this site, often with links to music.
