The production of Moya Brennans US show, tentatively titled "Sowing the Seed: Irish Music and the World", has started.

Some names are; Sinead O'Conner, Damien Rice, Patty Maloney, Orlagh Fallon of Celtic Women, Andrea and Jim Corr, Mary Black, Liam O'Maonlai and Bill Whelan. A national release date is planned in spring of 2010.

Thank you Ed. I get the feeling the writers of the article knew little about the actual show, so they just said series. It'll be great if they show it in my area. :)

Moya was in Dublin, Ohio at the Dublin Irish Festival this weekend with a film crew working on this project.

Not listed as performing, but she sang one song with The Celtic Tenors, and took part in the finale singalong. There may have been more. What a pleasant surprise!

Welcome to the forum, 41shots - Hope you enjoy it here with us! :D

I knew Moya was due to be in the States about now, and a performance (whether listed or not!) is always a bonus!!! :wink: Did you have the chance to speak to her?

I've been a lurker for a long time.


I did get to speak with her for a short time. It was fleeting moment really but a great surprise to see her here in my current hometown, ...after being a big fan of Clannad and Moya back in Ireland many many years ago.

Welcome to the forum! I'm glad that you've taken the plunge and joined us!

It must have been a lovely surprise to see and talk with Moya at that festival. (Next time you see her be sure to mention that you are on the forum!) I went to Dublin once (yes, it exists!) and heard about the festival. It sounded like it would be a place that Moya might perform, and I'm glad that she did!

Moya was recording something for television in Leo's Tavern on Tues night, Jan 27th. She was on the local Raidió na Gaeltachta earlier and asked people to come along to see her sing a few songs. I thought maybe this would be for the PBS programme.

Thanks for posting that, Ed!

There's actually some forummers on that promo!:wink: There's a brief glimpse from the 40th anniversary of Leo's on there....

You have to be lightning quick with the pause button (and granted it's shot from the back), but I'm sure the people who were there will spot themselves. I think I'm just out of shot, but never mind - I recognise quite a few others! :D
