ZUMIX and the A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation, Inc. Present an Intimate Evening with Moya Brennan.
Join us for an intimate, candlelight performance and artist reception.
Moya Brennan is the voice of Clannad and a Grammy Award winning singer.
Her beautiful voice has graced 17 albums with Clannad and a raft of breathtaking releases under her own name, as well as TV’s Harry’s Game, the films Last of the Mohicans and Robin of Sherwood, she is widely considered the First Lady of Celtic music.
“When you walk the windswept hills and endless beaches of Donegal it all makes sense.
Timeless, elemental and carried heavenwards in soulful breath, Moya’s voice reaches out to the farthest places but still touches the soul. She sings with an angel’s voice, arousing a passion in every listener. Her music refreshes and heals, exciting the senses, bringing a sense of calm to tired hearts.
Always fresh, forever just a dream away Moya captures the essence of her homeland in all it cascading beauty, mystery and contradictions. Yet she sings from the heart to a world where hope faith and joy are not just a dream.”
