Clannad and Mary Black (music)

March 2014 will see two of Ireland’s musical icons share the stage in a special tour that will be sure to delight fans of both artists. Performing both separate sets and together in 15 dates across the UK, this unique concert is one not to be missed and we have one-night-only in Eastbourne at the Congress Theatre!

Clannad, the Irish family group responsible for such timeless music as ‘Theme From Harry’s Game’, ‘In A Lifetime’ and ‘I Will Find You’, recently celebrated their 40th career anniversary. Their music entwines the traditional and the modern, past and future with stunningly beautiful results. With their haunting songs, mesmerizing vocals and captivating sound the group has sold over fifteen million records worldwide. They have also completed recording their first studio album in fifteen years. Scheduled for release in September 2013, Nadur will be the first to feature all five members since Past Present (1989).

For over a quarter-century, singer Mary Black has been a dominant presence in Irish music, both at home and abroad. Mary has released eleven studio albums all of which achieved platinum sales status and spawned countless hits. Her enduring success has proven that her depth of talent and her love of singing transcend the generations, as well as national and musical boundaries too. She is considered to be a real Irish treasure.
