Lisa Kelly Baby

ANOTHER CELTIC WOMAN ~ The Official Site for the band Celtic Woman has a message of congratulations to band member Lisa Kelly and her husband Australian dancer Scott Porter on the birth of their daughter. Ellie arrived on March 5th, 2008 and joins big brothers Cian and Jack.

Celtic Woman is an ensemble of six Irish female vocalists; Chloe Agnew, Orla Fallon, Lynn Hilary, Lisa Kelly, Alex Sharpe and fiddler Nairead Nesbitt. The group's repertoire ranges from traditional Celtic music to modern songs.

Lisa is a singer of both Classical and Celtic music. She had a musical upbringing with both parents and sisters being singers. She has been singing since the age of seven, when she starred in the musical version of Bugsy Malone. She has also portrayed Velma Kelly in Chicago, Florence in Chess, Laurie in Oklahoma, Maria in West Side Story and Sandy in Grease. She was also cast as the lead female vocalist from 2000 - 2005 in the American production of Riverdance and this is where she met her now husband. In 2002 she recorded her debut solo album Lisa. She was approached in 2004 to be part of Celtic Women as a one-night event; the group has since released three albums and several tours.
