CLANNAD AT CELTIC CONNECTIONS

 

Máire Ní BhraonáinMar chuid Celtic Connections 2007, tháinig baill den ghrúpa Clannad le chéile le haghaidh ceolchoirme don chéad uair le deich mbliana anuas. Sula ndeachaigh siad ar Ardán Cheoláras Ríoga Ghlaschú, mhínigh príomhamhránaí Moya Brennan do Lynette Fay cad é a thug le chéile arís iad. Labhraíonn sí chomh maith ar oidhreacht cheoil an bhanna, ar shaibhreas na n-amhrán Gaeilge, chomh maith leis an tionchar a d'imir grúpaí áirithe ceoil ar fhuaim Clannad… agus faoi dheireadh, míníonn sí focail an amhráin is clúití a bhí ag Clannad riamh, Harry's Game.


As part of the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow recently, Clannad played their first full concert together in ten years. Before the band take to the stage at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Lynette Fay catches up with Moya Brennan who tells us how this concert came about. Máire also talks about the band's musical heritage, the beauty of the Irish songs they grew up with and how this main influence fused with many others, from showband music to instrumental jazz … and finally, she tells us what she is really singing in the Clannad hit "Harry's Game"!
