Voice of Clannad bringing live show to Atkinson theatre
THE Voice of Clannad, Moya Brennan brings her live solo show – with all the musicality and power of Clannad but with added, heart-warming intimacy to The Atkinson.
Her effortless vocals and timeless music pay homage not only to her vibrant traditional Irish heritage but also her grasp of contemporary forms.
With Clannad she rose to prominence with an approach to traditional music which has garnered them 15 million record sales worldwide and a string of awards, including a Grammy in 1998. Their sound has since 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 success has resulted in eight albums to her credit and more in the pipeline. Her live show has developed into a spectacle with rhythm, atmosphere and vibrant harmony.
Her voice continues to be in demand in dance music and includes collaborations with Chicane (Saltwater), DJ Roger Shah and Schiller.
“Ireland is changing rapidly but one thing that remains constant is our love of music and wanting the whole world to hear it. I love being part of that”, says Moya.
Moya Brennan – The Voice of Clannad is at The Atkinson, Southport on Thursday March 15 at 7.30pm.
