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 monthly event Clubeo, which she hosts with RTÉ Raidio na Gaeltachta, Dónall Mac Ruairí.
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 performers, including Clann Mhic Ruairí, Spats Colombo Emma Ni Fhioruisce, Lauren Ni Chasaide and others.
Anyone who was fortunate enough to see Moya and her family’s magical performance, and the emotionally stirring Clann Mhic Ruairi, on the Mountain Stage at last year’s Swell will tell you, you don’t want to miss these performances!!!
Swell Festival is proud to be able to support the promotion of the Irish language. Bigí Linn!!
