Friday lost and found: Clannad with Bono 'In a Lifetime'
With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, we have to sneak in some Irish music into Lost and Found. Who better to represent Ireland than Clannad and Bono with their 1985 collaboration In A Lifetime.
While U2’s Bono is a worldwide celebrity, Clannad is no slouch having sold over 15 million records since forming in 1970. Clannad is a family act as all members are either siblings or uncles. In a Lifetime features the beautiful voice of Moya Brennan. Younger sister Enya left Clannad in 1982 and scored international success with Orinoco Flow (Sail Away).
Clannad will celebrate their St. Patrick’s Day by continuing their tour through Scotland and England and more likely will be drinking a pint instead of a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake.
