Ireland: Clannad - Something To Believe In

Clannad first made their mark in the folk and traditional scene in the 1970s in Ireland and mainland Europe. They subsequently went on to bridge the gap between traditional celtic music and pop music in the 1980s and 1990s with albums such as "Macalla" and "Anam".

During their career they toured the world extensively and gained fans in every major territory. The band won a Grammy Award in 1998 for Best New Age Album, and their record sales exceed the 15 million mark! They are also widely regarded as the band which, for the first time, put Irish traditional music and the Irish language on the world stage and paved the way for many other Irish artists.

In February 2007, the five original members of Clannad reunited on stage at the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, Scotland. Moya, Ciarán, Noel and Pádraig embarked on their first UK tour in over 10 years in March 2008, starting in Gateshead. Finally, another album was released with the title "The Essential Clannad", in 2012. As you realize, they have a "rich" and remarkable discography!

In the following audio we may listen their song "Something To Believe In" which was a great success for the band!

Ireland: Clannad - Newgrange

Clannad is a Grammy Award winning Irish musical group, from Gaoth Dobhair, County Donegal. Clannad's music has been variously described as bordering on folk and folk rock, Irish, Celtic and New Age. They are known for performing in various languages, including English, Latin, Gaidhlig, Mohican and most of all in their native language, Irish.

Clannad comprises siblings Moya Brennan and Ciaran Brennan, and their twin uncles Noel Duggan and Padraig Duggan. Other members, Enya (born Eithne Ni Bhraonain) and Pol Brennan, left the group in 1981 and 1990 to pursue solo careers (the remaining part from the history of the band will continue in the next post)...

I think it's a great pleasure for many people to listen the magnificent sound of the band! So, let's enjoy the following video with their song which has the title "Newgrange"...
