Maire Brennan

For many years, Máire Brennan has been the lead singer of the Celtic new age group Clannad. In 1992, she released her first solo album, Máire, on Atlantic Records. Three years later, she released Misty Eyed Adventures on BGM. For 1998's Perfect Time, she switched labels and signed with Word/Epic; Whisper to the Wild Water followed a year later. In 2001 and 2003, she released two volumes of New Irish Hymns, as well as Two Horizons. Irish Christmas arrived in 2006. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

She was the first celtic artist I started listening to 15 years ago, and still my favorite.
Perhaps the First Lady of contemporary Celtic music deserves a better bio than this ....
.
She's an amazing musician.
Omg winderful muisc. I love lerland muisc soooo awsome. Best muisc ever on Earth. Better then American muisc:) in my opinion
Stephanie, what you write is very interesting! I am Greek and Ihave studied linguistics, so your comment caught my eye. By the way, I like this ind of music, the Loreena Mckennit' s style!
Enchantress. . .

Beautiful performance by this wonderfully talented Irish songstress and her iconic family of Irish Celtic artists!
She is one great singer
David, the Celts lived in most of continental Europe with tribes living in modern day Germany, England, Spain and points a little further south. Today it has come to mean the people of Ireland and Scotland. They actually got their name from the Greek keltoi which was derived from the name of a tribe closer to Greece.

The cicle of life, the circle of the rivers of the earth. The circular forms in nature.
Notice that everything in nature tends to be (roughly) circular--tr e e s , rocks, etc. Ancient peoples were very aware of this and incorporated it into their religions and designs. The Celts were no exception, and produced some of the best examples of artistic representati o n of this concept. Indeed, their designs show no beginning and no end. Things like this are part of our ancestral memory. It is inevitable.
celtic=Irish . . . I think

Crazy obsession with Celtic Music. But who can blame me?

I like her
Thanks to WingedLiones s for the information beautifully expressed.
'Perfect Time' was my introduction to celtic music and still one of my favorite albums. Her voice can truly soothe the savage beast... it certainly does it for me.

This is Enya's sister! Oh my goodness. I didn't even ever think about Enya having a sister. Thanks to wingedliones s for the information. I love Maire's song Against the Wind. It is so celtic!

Enya and her sister Maire (Moya) are proof that just because you're in the same musical family, that doesn't mean your specific "sound-signa l " will manifest the same way. Enya prefers more ethereal, sonic textures and Moya is more traditional. I love listening to both women, depending on what I'm in the mood for. If I want ethereal, I go for Enya, if I want a traditional sound, Moya's the lady to listen to...it's all good! :D

@ Trace Frahm,

She is far more involved with music than Pandora lets on. Her family is extremely musically talented and has been enjoyed publicly since around 1970 to present day. Busy touring, recording with various artists and on soundtracks a hymn album is expected to be released this year (or soon after). She also goes by the phonetic spelling of her name now which is "Moya". Look for more music under that name. :)

@bfkcool Yes, Enya is Maire's little sister.
Maire's voice is beautiful and soothing. I hear the music of the spheres.
bfkcool
Her Bio says she was in Clannad. That was a family Group. Enya went solo from that band. Is Enya her sister?
What a timeless voice...
Her album 'Perfect Time' is absolutely the best! What a voice! Enya's big sister definitely set the standard for the rest of the family.

I am enthralled with her voice and talent. I have had the pleasure of seeing her live 3 times and could listen to her forever. If there is a voice of heaven she is it.
I saw her in PA Dec. 2008 at a sold out show. We need her to tour the US more.
A Queen of Celtic vocals.

Can't get enough. My Favorite is "Heroes" from Misty Eyed Adventures
I've been a fan of hers since I first discovered Enya and all the other talented musicians Clanned which are related in her family. Love her dreamy voice and melodies. Thanks for including her in the mix!
cool, that's what I love about pandora.. a constant learning curve..SUCH beautiful voices in one home, I wish my sisters sang this well.
Pandora, please combine this artists profile with Moya Brennan as they are the same artist with different spellings of her first name.
Once you realise that Enya and Maire are sisters, there is a certain family resemblance, isn't there? They have the same eyes. And similarly beautiful voices.
Maire and Enya are sisters? How could so much talent be located in one family?

Someone gave us her CD as a gift for our daughter's birth. It turned out to be the perfect gift. When I hear it now it takes me back to that most special of times. Thank you Maire. It is so beautiful as are you.
... people ... Máire was around WAY before Enya came into the music scene. I read somewhere that she even taught her little sister how to sing. Her solo efforts have a very different vibe and texture to the Clannad work, and more power to her for that. She's got a very wide range. Wish she did more.
tns_preston
I don't see it mentioned in the comment, but I read elsewhere that she's Enya's sister, which is a neat connection. Her sound is different enough from Enya's that they both appeal to different moods.
She's amazing. I think I've herd her when I was little and never knew who was singing until now.
i agree
Just beautiful...
