Moya Brennan

Moya Brennan captures the essence of her homeland in all its cascading beauty, mystery, and contradictions. Yet she sings from the heart to a world where hope, faith, and joy are not just a dream. Yes, it all makes sense and there are elements of these qualities in many of the world’s great singers. Yet it is astounding that her voice goes from strength to strength. She stands as an Irish icon with the world as her stage.

In her music-making, Moya has never been content to nestle within comfortable boundaries. From an early age, she trod the boards with her father Leo in the dance halls, then became fixated with the likes of Joni Mitchell and the Beach Boys before going on to share, with her band Clannad, an enlightening discovery of the extraordinary wealth of Celtic history and melody on her doorstep. Clannad sent tremors through the world of traditional music. With ‘Harry’s Game’ they took the Irish language and its melodies to places that it had never been before. Top of the Pops, major record contracts, and world tours. The accolades followed – Ivor Novello and BAFTA awards plus, after several nominations, a Grammy award in 1999.
Their music was fresh, vibrant, and progressive. Alongside all of this, Moya Brennan has developed an individuality that has already shown itself in her expanding body of work. When an artist’s career can often be measured in months, hers spans decades. Through this clamorous journey, through school halls, folk clubs, festivals, discos, churches, the world’s most renowned concert halls she has traveled purposefully and always focused. The power of her whispered tones and the beauty of her music touch the soul. Gently, yet persistently, her songs and her music are redefining Irish music.
