Celebrating an exceptional award-winning 50-year career, Clannad have announced dates on their ‘In a Lifetime’ Farewell World tour which sees the band tour Australia in March 2023, performing in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, and Canberra. This will be the final Clannad Tour of Australia. The March 2023 tour will mark 10 years since the legendary Celtic folk heroes toured, and it will also the first Australian tour without founder members Pádraig (2016) and Noel, who passed recently. The Grammy and BAFTA award-winning band have sold more than 15 million records worldwide and are responsible for such timeless music as Theme From Harry’s Game, In A Lifetime, I Will Find You and the soundtrack to the Robin Of Sherwood TV series. The multi-award winning Clannad have without doubt done more than any other group to take Irish music and the Irish language to a worldwide audience.
Music carries the listener across oceans
Framed by Moya Brennan’s heavenly voice, their music carries the listener across oceans and aeons to a time when a proud culture was first born. Fusing elements of Irish folk music with rock, pop, new age, and jazz they have created a beautifully unique and ethereal sound that combines haunting melodies and mesmerising vocals to transcend the sands of time whilst appealing to a worldwide audience of all ages. To coincide with this very special Farewell Tour, BMG Records have released In a Lifetime Anthology, a multi-format, career-spanning compilation containing tracks from their 50-year recording career. The live shows will see Clannad performing songs from the Anthology that will both delight and excite their enormous and loyal fanbase as well as introduce this legendary, influential, and culturally important band to a whole new generation of music fans.
