Meav has decided to take a full time break from touring with Celtic Woman, to spend time with her family and to focus on recording a new solo album.
As a result of this we are very excited to introduce, our wonderful new Celtic Woman,
Lynn Hilary trained as a classical soprano at DIT College of Music in Dublin, graduating with honours in June 2004. She has been a member of the renowned choir ‘An’na’ for 5 years, performing with them as a soloist on ‘Songs of Praise’, ‘BBC Proms in the Park’, and numerous other television appearances. With ‘An’na’ she has traveled to all corners of the world and features as a soloist on many of their albums.
Lynn was the lead vocalist for ‘Riverdance’ at the Special Olympics opening ceremony, performing to a live audience of over 85,000 and a television audience of millions. She has also been the lead vocalist for ‘Riverdance’ at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin for a ten week run and on tour in the USA, Canada and Europe, including six consecutive full houses at Radio City Music Hall, New York. She features as a soloist on the ‘Riverdance’ 10th Anniversary CD and DVD. Lynn has worked with many artists such as Daniel O’ Donnell, Luka Bloom, Jerry Fish and the Mudbug Club, and Don Mescall, to name but a few.
Lynn has already started working with the Girls readying herself for her debut performance on the 10th October 2007 in Estero, Florida, USA.
At this time we would like to thank Meav for her contribution to Celtic Woman over the last three years. We know Meav will be missed by Celtic Woman fans as much as she will be missed by us. We wish her every success in her solo pursuits and we look forward to working with Meav in the future.
