Folk music legend Moya Brennan will be sharing the story of her life in music when she features on RTE’s ‘The Works Presents‘ this week.
Moya will be profiled on ‘The Works Presents‘ with John Kelly as part of a special series focusing on leading women in Irish culture who are all at the height of their careers.
The Clannad singer, who won the Lifetime Achievement Award at the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards, is about to set off on a final farewell tour in 2020 for the band’s 50th anniversary.
From singing in her Father’s pub in Meenaleck to the great theatres in the world, Clannad – singing mostly in Irish – sold over 15 million albums.
Over the years the multi-award winning band has taken Irish music and the Irish language to a worldwide audience. Fusing elements of traditional Irish music and more contemporary folk, new age and rock they have created a beautifully unique and ethereal sound which combines haunting melodies and mesmerising vocals to transcend the sands of time whilst appealing to a worldwide audience of all ages.
The programme airs on RTÉ One, Thursday November 28th at 11.15pm.
