Celebrated as "one of the greatest voices the human ear has ever experienced" by Bono, Moya Brennan is coming to Worcester next week.

Over the past two years, Ms Brennan has been performing on the Farewell Tour of her family band, Clannad.

Their 50-year finale included a sell-out concert at Dublin’s 3 Arena in 2023.

Eager to resurface her solo career, Ms Brennan shared her anticipation towards touring the UK with her own band along with their new album, Voices & Harps IV.

Ms Brennan, hailed as the First Lady of Celtic Music, said: "Ireland is changing rapidly but one thing that remains constant is our love of music and wanting the whole world to hear it. I love being part of that."

She will be performing solo at Worcester's Huntingdon Hall on March 26.

Her solo performances have been described as possessing "all the musicality and power of Clannad - but with added, heart-warming intimacy".

In October 2019, President Michael D Higgins presented her with the RTE Radio Folk Awards Lifetime Achievement, saying: "Her name would be forever etched in the history of Irish music".

Additionally, in May 2022, Ms Brennan was honoured with an Honorary Doctorate from Dublin City University, where her musical expertise was described as "an innate ability to find the heart of music, to reach the essence of a song or a tune, and to make the ordinary extraordinary".

Her band Clannad was instrumental in creating the Celtic Music genre, and achieved 15 million record sales, a BAFTA, Ivor Novello, and Grammy in 1998.

Ms Brennan's solo ventures have also tasted success with nine albums, two of which were Grammy nominated.

Her latest offering, the new album Voices & Harps IV, is a collaboration with virtuoso harpist, Cormac De Barra, paying tribute to legendary Irish Harpist and singer, Mary O’Hara.
