NEW ALBUM TITLE ANNOUNCED

NEW ALBUM TITLE ANNOUNCED

 

We can now reveal that the title of the new album is 'Nádúr' (pronounced as Ned-dur). This is the Irish Gaelic word for Nature.  Irish author Colum McCann has written the liner notes for our new CD and sums the title up nicely by saying; “Clannad – the family -- have taken the local and made it universal once again.  Is é seo nádúr dhúchasach .... ‘this is their inherent nature‘   It will always be so.”

Thank you all for your entries in the recent competition to guess the new album's name (we now have enough suggestions for our next twenty albums!!) 

 

 

We had said the Irish or the English word would qualify and out of close to 1,000 entries there were just two entries that suggested the title of Nature. First was Doris Armstrong Ferzetti from the USA and second was Lui Miller from New Zealand. We will send you both a signed copy of the new album, just before its actual release date.

 

 

The album will be released on the ARC Music label in September. More details coming soon….
