The Bulfinch Fund Presents: Moya Brennan, Cormac De Barra Voices & Harps

Once again The Bulfinch Fund will bring internationally known and award wining musicians to Lancaster for a concert to benefit the Fund.  On March 11th, just in time for St. Patrick’s day,

Moya (Vocals, Harp) and Cormac (Vocals, Harp) will be joined by Sinead Madden (Fiddle, Keys, Vocals) at the First Church in Lancaster, MA.  We are sure the church’s famed acoustics will ring with their wonderful Celtic music. The Bulfinch Fund hopes to fill the church with music lovers once again and we hope you can join us!

Moya Brennan and Cormac De Barra both come from large musical families in Ireland and their mutual admiration for each other naturally developed into a stimulating musical relationship.

Their new album, Voices & Harps, is the culmination of their friendship and creative synergy over the past decade. They combine the simplicity, depth and beauty of the extraordinary skills which make them unique in their own field. Voices and Harps unveils a new chapter in their partnership.

Grammy award winner, Moya Brennan is the singer of Clannad as well as having a successful solo career. She has sung on most of the world’s great stages and has collaborated with many notable artists including The Chieftains, Robert Plant, Bruce Hornsby and Bono. She is also part of the female traditional group, T with the Maggies.

Cormac De Barra is renowned internationally as a versatile harp virtuoso. He continually pushes the boundaries of the Irish harp through his work with a wide array of artists, including Hazel O’Connor, Julie Feeney and Clannad.
