"She has an amazingly clear and soulful voice that imbues Irish Christmas songs with the sadness and sparkle they need to be, well, Irish."
“Katie McMahon Deserves a Kiss - She was the lead singer of Riverdance. Now she's our Celtic Woman.”
““Angelic sounds come forth from this Christmas CD. That’s because Katie McMahon is the singer.””
“McMahon’s lovely, soaring, silvery soprano seems to originate in celestial realms.”
"In the old Jimmy Stewart holiday classic 'It's A Wonderful Life,' the little daughter Zuzu believes that an angel gets their wings whenever the sound of bells are heard. Personally, I think those wings are bestowed every time Katie McMahon sings a song."
“Katie McMahon brought her dazzling voice, her sparkling personality, a wealth of Irish musical tradition, and a troupe of some of the finest Twin Cities musicians to celebrate a night of Christmas music the way it might feel in a candlelit pub in County Cork on a frosty December night.”
"A soprano voice that is simultaneously pure as silver and warm as honey."
“A jewel of a recording from a very talented artist.”
"[Katie] has a lovely voice and the arrangements are carefully done to maintain her vocal talents as the focal point of the album. With her beautiful soprano and harping, the recording is a delicate and gentle collection of songs. Highly recommended."
"Katie McMahon has a beautiful voice and I can think of no one better to sing many of the gentle and evocative songs on this album. Each song is perfect for the season and she has arranged each carefully. Occasionally sounding very Medieval, occasionally very Celtic, she has gathered an amazing group of musicians and singers to record with her."
“Most local singers haven't had the president of the United States tell them that he is a great fan of their work. Most local singers have never had U2's lead singer Bono tell them, "You have an amazing voice." Most local singers haven't been embraced by punk legends the Stranglers, or watched as an audience of Hollywood stars jig up and down to their music.”
“Katie's voice is pure and clear, and adapts easily as she sings different styles of music. Katie's stage presence is incredible. She lures her audience in to be captive of her song until the music has ended.”
