Post Easter Treat with Moya Brennan

Ten14 – Moya Brennan marks the Battle of Clontarf in a special matinee concert for family audiences.

It’s 1000 years since the Battle of Clontarf and to celebrate this historic occasion An Grianán Theatre is presenting a special concert from world famous Irish music legends Moya Brennan and harpist Cormac De Barra.

Designed specifically for children and family audiences, the show is called Ten14 and features beautiful music and lyrics to evoke the adventures our first High King, Brian Boru, and his love of the harp.

Produced by the Ark Theatre, Ten14 features both brand new music and well-loved trad tunes as you’ve never heard them before  in this exciting and intriguing performance. Featuring lyrics in both Irish and English, there will be plenty of sing-along moments and participation for the audience.

Both Moya and Cormac were fascinated by the history of Brian Boru as children. They also shared with him a love of the harp which furthered their interest in the man, the music and the myth.

Brian Boru’s ‘March’ was one of the first pieces both Moya and Cormac learned on the harp and they jumped at this chance to celebrate the hero himself, his last battle, his harp and to bring his story to life through music and song.

Moya hopes that Ten14 will introduce the next generation of music lovers to the importance of Celtic history and culture: “I love history and this is a great story, so for me it made sense to come on board. It’s nice to be able to relate this to young children through music and bring them on an hour long journey through song; and it’s important that kids are aware of who Brian Boru was and what he did”.

Ten14 is at An Grianán Theatre on Sun 27 April at 3.30pm. For further information contact An Grianán’s box office on 0749120777  or book online here.
