Celtic Woman: Lullaby is the sixth studio album by the group Celtic Woman, which was released on 15 February 2011.[1] This album was originally released exclusively through donations made to PBS stations back in November 2010 to support the Songs from the Heart television specials.[2]

Performers in Lullaby are vocalists Chloë Agnew, Lynn Hilary, Lisa Kelly, Órla Fallon, Méav Ní Mhaolchatha, Hayley Westenra, and fiddler Máiréad Nesbitt.[1] This is the second album where seven members (both current and previous) appear together, the first one being Celtic Woman: The Greatest Journey.

The inspiration for this album came from fans who loved the lullabys performed by the group. Some songs have been taken from films such as Pinocchio and Mary Poppins.[2] Some of the songs, such as "Goodnight My Angel", "Over the Rainbow", and 'Walking in the Air", are re-releases from the group's previous albums. "Hush Little Baby" is currently their shortest song to date.[1]
