    I encourage all of you to this concert. This is the second time I've seen them in 3 years. The greatest and most amazing show one can ever see. I've been to countless concerts in my life, but these women with their angelic voices and grace will captivate you.... not including the violinist who'll blow you away with her performance. I strongly encourage that all of you must see.

    you can look at their performances on you tube. Once again, I was blown away because I have never seen anything so beautiful in my life

    I also have seen them in concert, and they really are very good. The songs that I find especially intriguing are the ones that they sing in Gaelic.

    A great deal of music that they perform was written by an Irish group called Clannad, which consists of several Brennan siblings. One of them, Enya, eventually spun off and started her own (very successful) solos career.

    You're likely familiar with some of the songs that they've written, since they have wound up in movies. The movie "Joan of Arc" included a song by Maire (Moya) Brennan titled "Change My World":

    You may also remember "Theme from Harry's Game" from Patriot Games

    they also performed the music for the closing scent of "Last of the Mohicans":

    Thx. I hooked up to the link......looks like I'll be having Irish crème in my coffee this morning....good stuff. This is all brand new to me, while in prison I told myself that I'd experience new things
