To me it seems Moya never stops touring! My gosh, doesn't she get tired! :lol:

I obviously can't go, I live about 5000 miles away. :)

hmmm!! This is veryyy interesting really!

I have to ask my chauffeur if he's up for it! I saw on a map that it's not far from the camping we went in August :D
But Maybe.. we could team up é Methica!

I did think about it, but (from a map at least) it didn't look the easiest place for me to get at. Courtesy of Hester's help, I'm planning on going to the Purmerend gig next April instead.

Have a great night though - looks amazing from what I've seen! :)

Hiii peeps!!

Moya's concert was just last nigt and it was just fantastic!
It had everything (except one thing!)
The atmosphere was splendid.. the Dutch people were very enthousiastic! One even shouted she loved her! And off course Moya answered even that too :D
The only thing was the terrible cold of the tent.. Even on stage the band had to endour low temperatures.. (moya jumping a bit up and down too :p)
It was a 2hour and a bit performance and she did most songs from past tours..

like
Eleonor Plunkett
Mrs McDermott
Magical ring
the robin hood series.
against the wind
only one from Signature :) Many faces..
O' Mhuirnin o.. (we had to sing that too!)
Dulamann
Two sisters.. (everyone sang to the refrain of it :D)
She even did 2 duets with Sinead Madden! 2 Gaelic songs.. (I cannot put the words right down)
In a Lifetime.. (without bono too bad.. :P)
Perfect time.

There was a very nice new harpplayer I didn't recognize.. but she was so good! And it was just the 3rd time she played with the band..

Nice treats:
She moved through the fair.. as a starter..
I will find you..
Tell me now.. (very nice one!)

and so on..
There was a very nice video been played on the background.. showing images from Ireland, the King Arthur movie, Robin of Sherwood and so on..
At the end she got even 2 standing ovations!! But she really had diserved it! Because it was sooooo good!
The encore were even 2 songs!
I didn't knew the songs but they were from the first 2 clannad albums..
One song from the first album and the second from the second album.. :D
She was very funny and open to the audience.. it was a pleasure being there.. even if it was freezing cold in the tent..

Afterwards..
the many, many people wanted her autograph off course! Me too..
She was nice like ever :)
We had a nice conversation about the concert.. (it was one of the best ones I have been too really)

I was a bit of an idiot standing there off course.. i even was a bit embarrassed to get a picture.. lucky my boyfriend pushed me a bit and we stood at the back of the line again.. just for the picture.. Am I bad or what?? :S.. She just said I had to ask if I wanted.. and not to be shy like that..
There were just beautifull posters too!! Not too big.. (A3 format..) One with the photo from signature.. you know.. the nice close up.. and one with a picture from a past concert..
Even Fantasyval made some beautfull big posters to announce the concert.. (they were all over on the streets of Wouw and Ossendrecht!)
Very lovely.. !!)

I am still a bit impressed by last nigt!!!!
Thank you Moya for the great night and the very good concert!!! :D
It was defintly a cold night to remember in Bergen-Op-Zoom :D

We stayed over and with our tickets we could enter Fantasyval for one day too!
Very very nice.. :D

I will upload a couple of photo's soon :)

Greetz!!

Keiko.. aka Sara

Hi Sara and Aaron, thank you very much for the nice report and the photos.

After reading and seeing this I can hardly wait to be at a Moya concert again - 44 days left until the concert in Chemnitz.
