The Ark Presents Ten14 Moya Brennan (voice)/Cormac de Barra (harp)

3pm €8

This April world-famous Irish trad music legends Moya Brennan (the voice of Clannad) and Cormac De Barra (celebrated Harper) perform in this beautiful music show that they have created especially for children and families.

Commemorating 1000 years since the Battle of Clontarf, Ten14 uses gorgeous music and lyrics to evoke the adventures of our first High King, Brian Boru, and his love of the harp.

As part of its ongoing focus on music, The Ark commissioned Moya Brennan and Cormac de Barra to create a new music concert for children and families. Both Moya and Cormac were fascinated by the history of Brian Boroimhe 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. The concert will combine brand new music and well-loved trad tunes as you’ve never heard them before.

Join Moya Brennan and Cormac de Barra on a magical musical journey for everyone aged 4 to 104 on Thursday, April 24th at Riverbank Arts Centre.

Ten 14 is brought to you by The Ark with the support of an Arts Council Touring Award.
