CLANNAD. Irish band formed in 1970 in County Donegal. Their music has been variously described as bordering on folk, traditional Irish, Celtic and new age ; often incorporating elements of an even broader spectrum of smooth jazz and Gregorian chant. After twelve years of success in the folk music industry, they shot to international recognition in 1982 with the release of the "Theme from Harry Game" becoming the most successful band in the Celtic music genre. They subsequently went on to bridge the gap between traditional Celtic and pop music in the 1980-1990s with albums such as Macalla and Anam. During their career they toured the world extensively and gained fans in every major territory. They have recorded in six different languages (most notably in Irish) and their record sales have exceeded the 15 million mark. They have won several notable awards throughout their career, including a Grammy / BAFTA and Ivor Novello. They are a family band composed of siblings ; Moya / Ciaran and Pol Brennan and their twin uncles Noel & Padraig Duggan. Their sister / niece Enya left the group in 1981 to pursue a solo career. Ten years after "taking a break", the five original members of Clannad reunited on stage at the Celtic Connections Festival in February 2007 in Glasgow Scotland. Moya, Ciarán, Noel and Pádraig embarked on their first UK tour in over 10 years in March 2008. In September 2013, Clannad released "Nadur" their first studio album in fifteen years.
