With her violin, Tara McNeill provides what she calls Celtic Woman’s fourth voice. And a lovely voice it is.
From early childhood, when she first took up violin, harp and singing, violin has always been her first love. The sound of the violin, she says, conveys layers of emotion that have always appealed to her.
In 2016, she realized a life’s ambition—joining Celtic Woman as a principal member, replacing the previous violinist Mairead Nesbitt.
In this podcast, Tara looks back on her musical journey and describes how joining Celtic Woman was the answer to her little prayer.
