Clannad were the first band I ever saw performing live in concert - mid-late 80s. I was so disappointed when they all left the stage after what seemed like half a dozen songs. But, after a brief intermission, Máire return to the stage alone and soon thereafter began singing a capella. I was stunned - literally - perched on the edge of my seat. Such a beautiful voice, a perfect performance from beginning to end. It was a small audience compared to others Ive been to since. There was one person showing appreciation by dancing in the isle - to a few of the more up-tempo tracks. A simply magical experience. Thank you.
