Description

Moya Brennan

The First Lady Of Celtic Music

Bar 6.30pm Starts 8.00pm

Following successful tours in the last two years, Moya Brennan, with her Band, returns to the UK in Autumn 2019, bringing the distinctive wild Atlantic atmosphere of Northwest Ireland to her unique voice and sound.

Moya draws audiences into her world of rhythm, atmosphere and vibrant harmony; a journey where spells of rousing Irish tunes give way to moments of exquisite, fragile stillness. Over the years with Clannad and also in her solo shows, Moya has delivered pioneering Celtic harmonies and music rooted in her Irish heritage and inspired by the powerful elements of ocean, mountains and endless skies that surrounded her growing up in her native Donegal.

Along with Clannad, Moya has sold over 15 million records worldwide and a received a string of top awards, including Ivor Novello, BAFTA and a Grammy. They were awarded a lifetime achievement at the BBC Folk Awards in 2014. Their sound has become the benchmark for the Celtic music genre. Sister Enya joined Clannad for a time before pursuing her own successful career.

Moya’s solo career has continued that success with 9 albums to her credit and more in the pipeline. Following her 2018 studio album Canvas, Moya is set to release (in Spring 2019) a new Voices & Harps album with her long-time musical collaborator, Irish harp virtuoso, Cormac De Barra. Moya continues to be much in demand for a number of other projects and is both vociferous and active in her championing of Irish arts and culture abroad. Her career to date includes 25 albums, numerous film scores and she has sung with many great artists, including The Chieftains, Robert Plant, Paul Brady, Shane MacGowan and, of course, Bono, who said of Moya recently, “I think she has one of the greatest voices the human ear has ever experienced”.

Moya comes to the Irish Cultural Centre with her amazing Band, featuring some of Ireland’s greatest musicians. This special night will feature....Moya Brennan on vocals and harp; The acclaimed Cormac De Barra on harp and vocals; Aisling Jarvis on guitar, bouzouki and vocals; Clare Friel on violin and vocals; Paul Jarvis on keyboard, percussion and vocals.
