Short but very sweet

Postby Grania » Thu Nov 12, 2009 7:45 pm

I know we used to have a topic for interviews, but it appears to have been pruned off, so here's a new one. Anyway, short though this article is, I think it deserves a topic of it's own.

It appears to be written by the same chap who has written the sleevenotes for the remastered Clannad albums.

Expectionally sweet I thought :) And I think it says volumes too. 'Exceptionally kind' is Moya entirely isn't it really...well put my friend, very well put :)

For those who went to Letterkenny, I think that this is the same guy who "hosted" that concert. If it is, I would imagine he knows Moya quite well.

Thanks for posting, G - an interesting read.

Stuart met Moya through working with Tim when Tim worked with NME (magazine), although he was always a huge Clannad fan. Tim first met Moya when photographing her for NME! It's so sweet xD So many connections!

In her autobiography, Moya jokes about the picture, saying it wasn't "her", false nails and a hip new outfit. Always makes me giggle :lol:
