Clannad, the Irish family group responsible for such timeless music as ‘Theme From Harry’s Game’, ‘In A Lifetime’, ‘I Will Find You’ and the soundtrack to the ‘Robin Of Sherwood’ TV series, make a long awaited return to Australia in October 2013 to mark their 40th Anniversary.
Framed by Moya Brennan’s heavenly voice, their music carries the listener across oceans and aeons to a time when a proud culture was first born. Clannad’s groundbreaking fusion of traditional Celtic music with modern folk and rock needs almost no introduction, having created a genre almost to itself – a sound at the crest of the ‘world music’ wave that surged across the globe in the 80s and 90s.
It has been 18 years since the legendary Celtic folk heroes toured Australia.
