Clannad

Clannad bridged the gap between traditional Celtic music and pop. Usually, their results were an entrancing, enchanting form of pop that managed to fuse the disparate elements together rather seamlessly. Such fusions have earned the band an international cult of fans.

Taking their name from the Gaelic word for "family," Clannad formed in 1970 when the Brennan family -- Maire (vocals, harp), Ciaran (vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards), Pol (guitar, percussion, flute, vocals) -- began playing at their father Leo's tavern with two of their uncles, Padraig Duggan (guitar, vocals, mandolin) and Noel Duggan (guitar, vocals). Soon afterward, the group began playing folk festivals in Ireland. They released their self-titled first album in 1973, yet the band didn't earn any widespread success until they toured Germany in 1975. Maire's sister, Enya, joined the group in 1980, but left in 1982, just as the group was beginning to come into some pop success in the U.K. Clannad recorded the theme song for the television program Harry's Game; the single hit number five on the charts and won the band an Ivor Novello Award. The band recorded the soundtrack to the television production Robin of Sherwood in 1984; it won a British Academy Award for best soundtrack the next year. Clannad's success continued in 1986, when U2's Bono was featured on the Top 20 hit "In a Lifetime." The band continued to release albums into the '90s, building their pop following without losing their folk audience. Landmarks, which was issued in early 1997, earned the group their first ever Grammy award, though it also signaled the beginning of a long hiatus from the stage, and an indefinite one in regards to the studio. Compilations like The Best of Clannad: In a Lifetime and solo projects from Noel and Pádraig (The Duggans) and Moya Brennan dominated the front half of the 2000s, culminating in a 2008 world tour that found Clannad traveling as far as Thailand. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

I can hear her music all day long........ . . . . . . LOVE!!!
Family harmony.. discord not present in the chords and echoes of the spiritual connect of their song. I have heard this song prior, but today, i realize I have missed the essence of beauty and have now become a true fan.

Wish Pandora had a "replay" option! Exquisitely beautiful!

Lovely song by an extremely talented family.

Nice harmony
So this where Chicane's Saltwater came from.....
enya is the younger sister of the lead singer of this group.
Never has music and a TV show been matched so perfectly. Robin of Sherwood is a completely different viewing experience without Clannad.
Just discovered them; I agree with quinlanmk7 - peace to the spirit and it speaks to our souls. And James Bond -- you can learn Gaelic in Nova Scotia at the Gaelic College (www.gaelicc o l l e g e . e d u )
Lovely..
Soothing.... .

Celtic music gives peace to our spirit. It is in my blood!
Enyas solo work is even better yhan her work with her siblings.
Incredibly besutiful. Only wish I vould understand Gailic.

I think I like Enya better
yup, they're about the best..
as fine a group as you'll find anywhere...I know they've captured me..hi Stephanie.:)
Clannad is not a her, it's a them. Maire (the lead singer) has done a few of her own things. Enya split from them years ago.
I have known of her a long time.
Voice of an angel, My favorite song from them.
The Clannad..... m y soul searching music

Clannad's sound entrain with my soul...it's always inviting and warm, like home...past lives? Great musically; they are under appreciated imho. Enya is remarkable, but more complete as Clannad.

Incredibly talented family! Love all their amazing work - Clannad sings the music of my soul.
I like Clannad music. Her voice is equally beautiful as her sister's.
This artist reminds me of Lisa Thiel. Which is good, very good.
No. Clannad did not contribute to the soundtrack to Harry Potter.

Clannad toured in the US this past fall and was at the Keswick Theater in Glenside PA just outside Philly. It was great to see them with a respectful audience who were quiet for the music.

Very relaxing and calming song.
Great musical FAMILY. She is right up there with her sister Enya-----LOV E them both.
bobblysmael, not quite. Maire (Moya) was the lead singer of Clannad. Then she went solo and went by her own name.
Will listen to this music in my lifetime!
