Clannad

Clannad were an Irish band, whose style differed from the more popular band, The Corrs. They have been around since 1970. Their music has been variously described as bordering on folk and folk rock, Irish, Celtic and New Age, often incorporating elements of an even broader spectrum of smooth jazz and Gregorian chant.

Clannad were an Irish band, whose style differed from the more popular band, The Corrs. They have been around since 1970. Their music has been variously described as bordering on folk and folk rock, Irish, Celtic and New Age, often incorporating elements of an even broader spectrum of smooth jazz and Gregorian chant. They are known for performing in various languages, including English, Latin, Scottish Gaelic, Mohican and most of all in their native tongue, Irish. They have won several notable awards throughout their career, including a Grammy, a BAFTA, an Ivor Novello and a Billboard Music Award.

Clannad comprises siblings Moya Brennan (Irish: Máire Ní Bhraonáin), Ciarán Brennan (Irish: Ciarán Ó Braonáin), Pól Brennan (Irish: Pól Ó Braonáin, who left in 1990 and rejoined in 2011) and their twin uncles Noel Duggan (Irish: Noel Ó Dúgáin) and Pádraig Duggan (Irish: Pádraig Ó Dúgáin). Sibling Enya (Irish: Eithne Ní Bhraonáin) left the group in 1981 to pursue a solo career. Yeah, it's the same Enya who tugged at our hearts in the soundtrack of Lord Of The Rings. « hide
