Máiréad Nesbitt – Touring Artist
Any fan of violin and world music will undoubtedly recognize Máiréad Nesbitt, the immensely talented Celtic violinist who was the featured violin soloist on the 11 Celtic Woman records. She is Grammy and Emmy nominated for her work in the world music scene and is always an electrifying presence on stage.
In addition to her performances as a part of the Celtic Woman Group, Máiréad is also an accomplished solo artist who released her newest album “Hibernia” at the end of 2016 to great fan and critical acclaim. Upon its release, “Hibernia” charted on four different Billboard charts, including the World Music, Classical Crossover, Heatseekers, and Classical charts.
She is set to release a line of custom violins in the near future along with an album of new music that she performed with her family. In addition to all of her solo endeavours, Máiréad Nesbitt is also performing as a touring musician with the classical music-meets-classic rock concert experience Rocktopia, where she will once again bring her incredibly passionate violin-playing to a new group of people who will undoubtedly become fans after hearing her play.
