Moya and Cormac embark on Ten14 tour (24 Mar 14)

Ten14 - Moya Brennan and Cormac de Barra

Moya and Cormac will perform a series of concerts celebrating 1014. Commemorating 1000 years since the Battle of Clontarf, Ten14 uses gorgeous music and lyrics to evoke the adventures of Ireland’s first High King, Brian Boru, and his love of the harp.

Moya and Cormac have also written a song entitled Ten14 specifically for the commemorative event. “I love history and this is a great story, so me for it made sense to come on board. It’s nice to be able to relate this to young children through music and bring them on an hour long journey through song; and it’s important that kids are aware of who Brian Boru was and what he did,” said Moya, speaking to the Irish Independent.

The 1014 commemoration programme at The Ark is supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and Dublin-Unesco City of Literature. The Irish tour of Ten14 is presented with the support of an Arts Council Touring Award and Brennan will perform at Draoicht in Blanchardstown, Riverbank Art Centre in Newbridge, Mermaid Arts Centre in Bray, AnGrianán Theatre in Letterkenny, glór in Ennis and Dunamaise Arts Centre in Portlaoise.

Ten14 is brought to you by The Ark with the support of an Arts Council Touring Award.
