HASH(0xa5c8645c) out of 5 stars A great violinist March 25 2006
By Michael Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For over a period of time I have been looking at and listening to Celtic Woman online. I have been trying to determine if I want to purchase the CD.
Finally I broke down and bought it. I like Celtic music and figured it might be a good album to listen to.
I got the recording home and much to my surprise there was a woman on the CD that played a very lively Celtic violin.
I found myself going to the songs on the CD where Mairead played the violin. Her style of play intirgued me, to the point where it haunted me. The songs that stand out in my mind include: Raining Up, Finan's Isle,The setting sun, Blue lights within the blue suite (all three movements). Mairead plays with a passion and a poignancy that makes you think the voilin is expressing itself through her. At times the violin seems to be crying. To me it brings back Celtic music they way it might have been played by her ancestors, hundreds of years ago. My own ancestory is Celtic which might be why I identify with this music
It should be a crime for a woman to be this beautiful and this talented at the same time. With that babyface and that long blonde hair, she simply melts me everytime I watch her perform. She is constantly moving as she plays, she is a ball of energy that never stops. I looked online to find out if she has any previous solo efforts and was glad to find that she did infact have a solo CD out. I have never been so excited about a violinist before. She is a virtuoso violinist, and she plays with passion that few have.
I put the CD on and was not able to stop listening to it.
What you have here is an outstanding Celtic violinist performing some outstanding music.
She comes at you with a variety of music. The songs range from slow to very fast. The one thing the songs all have in common is that they are very good. And she is a master musician. This is the first time I have bought a CD by a violinist, and I cant wait for her to release a second solo CD or for Celtic Woman to release a new CD.
What you hear is a Celtic violinst that will not only haunt you but she will make Celtic music a treat to listen to. It doesnt get any better than this....ENJOY

HASH(0xa5ce5b34) out of 5 stars Perfect CD for Violin enthusiast Jan. 16 2006
By M. Pabilona - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the CD's I own wherein I'd listen to it from the first track to the last, because I just love all the songs in it. "There is no Night" and "Within the Blue Suite 1,2,3" are my personal favorites. When I play this CD in my car or when I'm at home, I feel so relaxed because the music is just so enchanting. I may not be a music expert, but I sure know a good album, and this is one of my best albums in my collection.

I've been a Mairead fan since her performance with Riverdance. There's just something about this whole disc that lifts your spirits. My only regret is not being able to find more solo work from this very gifted artist!!

If you have seen Mairead on Celtic Women and wondered what a CD buy here would be like, it is fantastic. Her music, like her, is full of energy. There is not a bad track on the CD. If you like new age or celtic music, then it is a must have.

HASH(0xa7877678) out of 5 stars Just a very special album. Nov. 8 2008
By E. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Sometimes an artist comes along who makes you believe in music again. Máiréad is one of those! This woman is quite possibly one of the most talented human beings I've ever come across. Her ability to blend classical with traditional is unparalleled. When you watch her perform, you can scarcely believe your eyes. She believes in her music, she loves the music and she loves to play. It shows.

Anyway, on to her CD. After seeing her live, I knew I had to have it, and let me tell you, you will not be disappointed if you buy it. It's very different, in my opinion, from Celtic Woman material, and yet I feel that Celtic Woman audiences will love and appreciate it. Many of the songs have an almost ambient feel to them, and combined with the traditional element, you have a very unique CD.

"There is No Night" is a sweet, beautiful song, and probably my favorite, though "Skidoo," "Finan's Isle" and several others come very close. There is an excellent combination of both slow and fast on the album, and I really feel that there's something for everyone. I often listen to her CD in the car and it's great on my morning commute. Her playing is both wonderful and awe-inspiring. "Captain H" is another fantastic song, written by Máiréad herself, along with "Bluelights."

There is one vocal track on the CD. A very interesting, very traditional Irish song sung by Máiréad herself. I was a bit perplexed by it at first, but grew to love it purely because it is so different from anything I've personally heard before.

If you've enjoyed Máiréad in Celtic Woman, you will more than likely love her album. She's a very talented lady who will not soon be forgotten. There is so much more in store for her in the future. I just know it! She just enjoys playing so much that she enables her audience to truly enjoy it as well, whether live or on CD! Also, I would encourage anyone to go out and see Máiréad in concert with Celtic Woman. You'll never forget it!
