About this deal

Rí na Cruinne" was included on One World One Voice, a charity album intended to raise awareness of environmental issues. A month after Magical Ring was released, the band were commissioned to score the 26-episode television drama series Robin of Sherwood, which was broadcast on ITV from 1984 to 1986. It was recorded in two days and became an atmospheric piece featuring a Prophet-5 synthesizer and over 100 tracked vocals, a departure from their usual acoustic folk sound. A chance remark to their friends in U2 resulted in Bono singing a duet with Maire on the track 'In A Lifetime'.

Fuaim features Maire's sister Enya and has the transitional sheen-like production that would come into its own on the synthesizer-washed Magical Ring — with its 'Theme from Harry's Game'.With help from a grandfather they had named themselves 'Clann as Dobhar', Irish for 'Family from Dore', [24] and they used this name until 1973, when they removed the 'a' and the 'D' and shortened the name to 'Clannad'. Both sets 1 and 2 of the European and North American Blu-ray releases of Robin of Sherwood have a "music only" track for many of the episodes. In 1980, Clannad became a six-piece band with the addition of younger sister Enya Brennan on keyboards and additional vocals. Robin (The Hooded Man)" was re-released in 1986 as an " Extended Play Single" with a newly recorded version of the title theme and featuring actor Jason Connery on the sleeve. Clannad was formed by siblings Ciarán, Pól, and Máire Brennan and their twin uncles Noel and Pádraig Duggan.

In 1982, the now five-piece Clannad signed to RCA Records and acquired Dave Kavanagh as their new manager. Their children performed there together and developed their own act, with Ciaran and Pol Brennan on bass, vocals and bongos, Padraig and Noel Duggan on guitars, and elder Brennan sister Moya on harp and vocals. Mark Prendergast tracked them down to talk about the unique sound which has spawned a dozen successful albums over 20 years. Enya's first recordings with Clannad were made as a guest musician on their fifth studio album, Crann Úll ( Apple Tree), which was recorded in Cologne, Germany and released in 1980 on Tara Music.Despite their success with this genre of music, the group maintained a link with their Gaelic roots, giving traditional Irish songs such as "Tráthnóna Beag Aréir" and "Buachaill Ón Éirne" the Clannad treatment. Do you think of yourselves as high-fidelity artists since you are asked to do quite a lot of soundtracks? This was furthered on 'Legend' a soundtrack commissioned for the television series, 'Robin Of Sherwood' in 1984. That happened because Michael Mann liked the Gaelic but we felt that it wouldn't be right to sing about early American history in Irish, so we chose Mohican words and a Cherokee Indian chorus. Clannad provided music for The Angel and the Soldier Boy, an animated film narrated by actor Tom Conti.

Anam is the first album after the departure of Pol Brennan to work with WOMAD, but Banba shows the real fruit of the change in Clannad's even deeper production sound. The tour concluded in Seattle, Washington on October 9, 2023, after which Clannad planned to disband, with individual members pursuing solo projects. The contents of this magazine are re-published here with the kind permission of SOS Publications Ltd. The band's music was increasingly in demand for soundtrack work, appearing on Last Of The Mohicans, (1992) and Message In A Bottle (1999).In 1984, the band embarked on their first major concert tour of the UK, which was followed by a 18-month world tour, including dates across the US and USSR. Sirius is largely a failed experiment at American AOR with the Kunkel/Landanyi production theme clouding Clannad's natural beauty.

By the time Clannad entered Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin to record their next album, Fuaim ( Sound), Enya had become a full-time member.They also wrote original material, and covered songs by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Joni Mitchell. Later in 1973, Clannad competed for Ireland in the heat stages of the 1973 Eurovision Song Contest with the song "An Pháirc".
