Celtic Woman is an all-female Irish musical ensemble conceived and assembled by Sharon Browne and David Downes, a former musical director of the Irish stage show Riverdance. In 2004, he recruited five Irish female musicians who had not previously performed together: vocalists Chloë Agnew, Órla Fallon, Lisa Kelly and Méav Ní Mhaolchatha, and fiddler Máiréad Nesbitt, and shaped them into the first lineup of the group that he named Celtic Woman. Downes chose a repertoire that ranged from traditional Celtic tunes to modern songs.
The group’s lineup has changed over the years; in 2009, the group consisted of Chloë Agnew, Lynn Hilary, Lisa Kelly, Alex Sharpe and fiddler Máiréad Nesbitt; Alex Sharpe left the group in May 2010. Seven albums have been released under the name „Celtic Woman”: Celtic Woman, Celtic Woman: A Christmas Celebration, Celtic Woman: A New Journey, Celtic Woman: The Greatest Journey, Celtic Woman: Songs from the Heart, Celtic Woman: Believe and Celtic Woman: Home for Christmas. The group has undertaken a number of world tours. Cumulatively, albums by Celtic Woman have sold over 6 million records worldwide. The Celtic Women are all of Celtic origin.
The foundation for Celtic music’s popularity outside Ireland and Europe was built by tapping into the success of artists such as Enya and Clannad, along with stage shows Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. Celtic Woman has been described as being „Riverdance for the voice.”

On the mountain long ago Moses received God’s law. I haven’t been up to a mountain or anything, but I thought I’d use this pattern to make some points about blogging (and micro-blogging, too, if you’re in to social media like Twitter).
So here you go with the Ten Commandments of blogging…
1. Thou shalt offer fresh and personal content and perspective with thy blog that you and only you can produce.
2. Thou shalt carve with lexis that common folk can twig (translation: You will write using words that real people can understand).
3. Thou shalt not tear someone else down with thy blog. If you have an issue with that person, go to them to work it out.
4. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor with thy blog.
5. Thou shalt not pluck quotes from thy neighbor’s blog without giving him credit.
6. Thou shalt not steal content from thy neighbor’s blog and portray it as thine own.
7. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s blog, but will be happy with thine own.
8. Thou shalt not spend more time blogging, reading blogs and/or commenting on blogs (let alone with any other type of social media) than with thy wife, kids and pet.
9. Thou shalt take time for rest and relaxation from blogging at consistent intervals. Go outside and smell the roses.
10. Thou shalt not make an idol out of blogging. Thy life consists of much more than that.
