A harpist and singer from Co Wicklow, Orla is an original member of the group Celtic Woman. The group's TV Specials have been a constant on PBS Television in The US and Orla has toured extensively in North America playing such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall, New York, The Greek Theatre, LA and The Boston Opera House. Since leaving Celtic Woman in December 2008, Orla has been carving out a successful solo path. In February 2009 she won four Irish Music Association Awards including, Best Solo Singer and Best Harpist. In 2011 Orla was back with yet another Public Television Special entitled 'My Land', featuring the legendary Dubliners, Tommy Fleming and Damien Dempsey as special guests. Following a break from Music to concentrate on being a Mum, Orla recorded her most honest and heartfelt album to date in early 2017. Stepping away from her harp, 'Sweet By and By' has a very warm country feel and features a mixture of Irish and American classics from artists that have influenced Orla's own career including Alison Krauss, Johnny Cash, The Chieftains and Maura O'Connell. '..this is Fallonís best yet because it's all her own. It's authentic, genuine, heartfelt, and for that reason, it's a remarkable musical accomplishment' - Colleen Taylor The Irish Echo.
