In a career spanning four decades, Clannad band have made music that entwines the traditional and the modern, moving from their roots in traditional Irish music to experiments with pop artists and rock producers. To date they have released some 16 studio albums, the most recent being 2013’s 'Nádúr', selling over 15 million records worldwide in the process.
The band have also remained a live draw throughout their career, with their show documented for release on three occasions between 1979, when ‘Clannad In Concert’ arrived, and 2013, with the unveiling of ‘Clannad: Christ Church Cathedral’. In the autumn of 2014 they will return to UK venues for a series of headline dates.

Upcoming Clannad Tour Dates & Concerts

The Philharmonic Hall is an excellent venue and the acoustics are superbly matched with the music of Clannad and Mary Black. Moya's voice has not lost any of its haunting sounds and there could be no better musicians to back her than her brothers and uncles.
Seeing them live is an awesome experience and listening to their new material such as Vellum, Rhapsody na gCrann and Brave Enough alongside some of their more well known songs, Theme from Harry's Game and the compilation of songs from the film Robin of Sherwood is a privilege. The atmosphere was both respectfully quiet and at the same time there seemed to be electricity in the air.
Personally, the highlights of the concert were hearing the fantastic vocals and the instrumentals which blended perfectly and also where would you get a fantastic group of musicians and the vocals of Moya and Mary Black in the same place which came together in the final encore. The worst moment was when they left the stage - night over, but what a night!!! The encore and the audiences applause are still ringing in my ears.
