Hi maren

First of all, welcome to the forum! It's great to have you here, and even better to have someone from Bretagne! Where exactly are you from?

We're mostly fans on this board :) Moya does drop in on us from time to time, but she is a very busy lady :) If you're after permission to use her songs, may I suggest that you contact her management? if you take a look at the 'contact' page on her main website

Stay around and talk to us! :D

:lol: Well, I'm not sure that all Bretons love England and the English, there are too many of us over there!

I'm Grania, English, I'll admit. Wish I was Irish, but I'm not! I'm one of the moderators here. I'm not Moya :wink:

If you want to contact Moya or her management directly, can I point you to here:

Welcome to the forum, Jeremy!

We are very happy to have you here, so please feel free to join in any conversations. It is very good to hear from a fan in Brittany - I wonder if you've heard and enjoyed Clannad's "Rince Briotánach (Brittany Dance)"?

As Grania says any requests to use Moya's music should be directed to her Management via the address she posted.

Hello did's and hello everybody ,when I saw your pseudo, I was thinking then you are british , we actually are not many on the forum as French.
Me, I met the group in the mid 80s, but I had already heard their music.
the wheel has turned and the computer arrived, the pc, internet and the ease of finding those we loved.
for clannad, it was pure chance , I honestly believed them dissolved long ago, except enya.
A few weeks ago a friend sent me a pps, I wear my attention more on music than on the image at the same time a friend, music teacher (retired but still takes care of children, receive the same pps the same by the same person and asked that it was this music, and of course I immediately recognized "Theme from Harry game "
The lady in question was happy and wanted to know more, and use this music for her classes. course, with another friend, we searching in the web and find several forum abandoned, and then one there.
I'm a fan of ireland, and all that rely on Celtic cultures .. Gaellic, Greek, the Scotland, and many others ..
our language, Breton, not a dialect, it is recognized as a separate language ..
For example, the Welsh language is very easy for us to understand Breton-very similar. and this wonderful culture that "CLANNAD" and others help us to love and understand. In every city in Brittany, we have at least one school "Diwan" where we speak our language, it's great to see children born here to speak in the language of their grandparents, do you think so ??
I'll put this message in English on the forum, if my English is understandable ... good day to you .. friendly .. Kénavo
