Description
Moya Brennan, also known as Máire Brennan, is an Irish folk singer, songwriter, harpist, and philanthropist. She began performing professionally in 1970 when her family formed the band Clannad. She is best known for her song "I Will Find You" from the film "Last Of The Mohicans". The song "Strong In Numbers", is a celebration of the power of those voices and bodies that resist oppression, unjust silencing and suppression. It is a call for a better world fit for future generations.

But while the sentiments that Moya (also the lead singer with Clannad) expresses in this song are deadly serious, the music pulses with true Irish vigour. With his accordion playing, Liam O'Connor (Lord of the Dance original cast) lifts the song to an Irish-dance anthem with his breathless musicianship.

The song marks a coming together of two prominent Irish musical families - Moya's daughter and son, Aisling and Paul play on the track while her husband, Tim, co-wrote the song and plays cello. Liam's daughter, Saoirse, and son, Oisin, complete the line up along with Irish flute virtuoso, Eamonn De Barra.



LYRICS:

A wall strong in numbers
Burns the midnight candle
The brave arm in arm
Stands before them now
Up against the wind
Old ways up against the wind

The game is in their hands
Calling out the colour
Togetherness their courage
Recognize the power
Make a stand before them
Old ways follow the beaten track
Against the wind
Against the wind

Defying their leaders
Holding out for free will
The strong dare to echo
Nothing can stop
Nothing can stop us now
Up against the wind
Old ways up against the wind

The game is in your hands
Reach for every moment
In rising generations
Capturing the change
Make a stand before them
Old ways follow the beaten track
Against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind
