A harpist and singer from Knockananna in Co Wicklow, Orla is an original member of the group Celtic Woman. The group’s TV Specials have aired on PBS Television in The US over 14,000 times and Orla has toured extensively in North America playing such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall, New York, Redrocks, Colorado, The Greek Theatre, LA and The Boston Opera House. ‘I have been privileged in the places Music has brought me’ says Orla Fallon. Given the places she’s been these past years it would be difficult to disagree. His Holiness Pope John Paul II, US Presidents Clinton and Bush and Irish President Mary McAleese have all been part of Orla’s audience both as a solo artist and as a member of the phenomenally successful group Celtic Woman.‘Playing in such places as The Vatican or The White House, you never realise when you are growing up that you will ever see inside these places let alone sing and play. I think that’s the wonder of the whole thing. It’s amazing the doors that Music can open for you.’ Since leaving Celtic Woman in December 2008, Orla has been carving out a successful solo path working on a number of shows and productions including TV specials. In 2011 she negotiated a successful 50 date coast to coast tour of The US, as well as several concerts in Ireland. In December 2012 Orla completed her first solo tour of The Netherlands with her band. Orla is currently working on new material for her forthcoming studio album as well as performing at concerts in Ireland and The US.
