5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely 5 stars! 5 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
A good blend of traditional and modern celtic sounds,a bit more mellow than the Lord of the Dance/Feet Of Flames soundtracks but nevertheless a great first album from Mairead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raining Up is music for your soul. 14 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
This CD will make you both smile and shed a tear. You will find pieces that are jolly and energizing, pieces that are soothing and relaxing and pieces that are emotional and sad. It has it all! It's an inner journey that lightens you...it's music for your soul.
As you can read, I absolutely love Máiréad Nesbitts debut album Raining Up. It's wonderful, and I can't recommend it enough!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great violinist 25 Mar 2006
By Michael Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For over a period of time I have been looking at and listening to Celtic Woman online. I have been trying to determine if I want to purchase the CD.
Finally I broke down and bought it. I like Celtic music and figured it might be a good album to listen to.
I got the recording home and much to my surprise there was a woman on the CD that played a very lively Celtic violin.
I found myself going to the songs on the CD where Mairead played the violin. Her style of play intirgued me, to the point where it haunted me. The songs that stand out in my mind include: Raining Up, Finan's Isle,The setting sun, Blue lights within the blue suite (all three movements). Mairead plays with a passion and a poignancy that makes you think the voilin is expressing itself through her. At times the violin seems to be crying. To me it brings back Celtic music they way it might have been played by her ancestors, hundreds of years ago. My own ancestory is Celtic which might be why I identify with this music
It should be a crime for a woman to be this beautiful and this talented at the same time. With that babyface and that long blonde hair, she simply melts me everytime I watch her perform. She is constantly moving as she plays, she is a ball of energy that never stops. I looked online to find out if she has any previous solo efforts and was glad to find that she did infact have a solo CD out. I have never been so excited about a violinist before. She is a virtuoso violinist, and she plays with passion that few have.
I put the CD on and was not able to stop listening to it.
What you have here is an outstanding Celtic violinist performing some outstanding music.
She comes at you with a variety of music. The songs range from slow to very fast. The one thing the songs all have in common is that they are very good. And she is a master musician. This is the first time I have bought a CD by a violinist, and I cant wait for her to release a second solo CD or for Celtic Woman to release a new CD.
What you hear is a Celtic violinst that will not only haunt you but she will make Celtic music a treat to listen to. It doesnt get any better than this....ENJOY

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect CD for Violin enthusiast 17 Jan 2006
By M. Pabilona - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the CD's I own wherein I'd listen to it from the first track to the last, because I just love all the songs in it. "There is no Night" and "Within the Blue Suite 1,2,3" are my personal favorites. When I play this CD in my car or when I'm at home, I feel so relaxed because the music is just so enchanting. I may not be a music expert, but I sure know a good album, and this is one of my best albums in my collection.

I've been a Mairead fan since her performance with Riverdance. There's just something about this whole disc that lifts your spirits. My only regret is not being able to find more solo work from this very gifted artist!!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Age meets Celtic 13 Aug 2006
By William A. Mcwhorter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you have seen Mairead on Celtic Women and wondered what a CD buy here would be like, it is fantastic. Her music, like her, is full of energy. There is not a bad track on the CD. If you like new age or celtic music, then it is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars On a roll 30 Mar 2006
By Roy Krause - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm really on a roll, just bought my fifth CW CD Raining Up and its fantastic. Every selection a masterpeice. CW just keeps getting better and better. There is only one thing that would improve Mairead's performance. A Stradavarius violin. If Bill Gates wants to do the music loving public a favor he should dig into petty cash and donate it to Mairead. Can you imagine what beautiful music she'd produce.
