It wouldn’t be Swell without Moya Brennan & Family

The First lady of Celtic Music, Moya Brennan, makes a very welcome return to Swell Music & Arts Festival on Arranmore Island in Donegal later this month.

As the lead singer of world-renowned Clannad, Moya has been one of the greatest ambassadors to Donegal and the Irish language for over four decades and continues to promote her native county with pride to this day.

Held in high regard by the Irish and world music industry, Moya has also built up a very strong relationship with artists of all ages through her monthly event Clubeo.

Many of those artists have also made the leap from the world famous stage at Leo’s Tavern in Meenaleck, Crolly to the stages at Swell Festival over the past few years.

Moya Brennan & Family, husband Tim Jarvis, daughter Aisling and son Pól, will be joined by a host of other talented Irish language and Scots Gaelic performers (more news to follow) on the Stáitse na nGael on Sunday, which is hosted on The Mountain Stage presented by Earagail Arts Festival.

We are so honoured that Moya Brennan & Family have become an eagerly anticipated annual highglight. It wouldn’t be Swell Festival with out them and we are proud to be able to support the promotion of the Irish language. Bigí Linn!!

The fifth annual Swell Music & Arts Festival takes place on Arranmore Island, Donegal from Friday, July 27 to Sunday, July 29. Click here to purchase tickets.
