This is one of my all-time favorite groups! Yet, I've never heard of them being on tour. Does anyone know if and when they will be touring?

Thanks for responding. Some groups/singers just don't do good live shows. I'd still LOVE to see her in person, however.

The "something" missing in her live performances is due to the fact that on her recordings it is her voice singing every part. In the studio they record each part separately and then multi-layer her tracks one over the other. In live performance it is impossible for her to sing every part, so they use the recording of all layers except the "front voice" which is what she sings live.

Enya is one person - not a group. She has the assistance of Nicky and Roma Ryan, who help produce her music. She uses a multi-layered "overdub" effect that layers her voice together as she sings each different part. As far as I know Enya only does select performances, and I have never heard of her going on "tour", except maybe in her native Ireland. You may also enjoy Clannad, as lead singer Mai're Brennan is Enya's older sister.

I was about to say this--yes, Enya is a person, so I would hope that she's still "together"! She does seem almost reclusive at times, releasing an album and then being out of sight for a few years. Didn't she just have an album a year or two ago? I like Clannad and some of the other Irish/Celtic groups, and try to listen to some podcasts with this type of music.

I love Enya too, she is great, she is a one man band really, sings all harmonies and plays all instruments herself I believe...a very beautiful sound...

This is a really good question, I haven't heard anything from them in quite awhile. My favorite Enya song is "only time", that's the only one that I really know of actually.

Hi Chunkers, I did a search for you. Here's the website: http://www.ents24.com/web/artist/58615/Enya.html Sorry, no tour dates right now, but you can sign up & they will email you when they have more tour dates listed for her. Hope this helps. Hugs

Sorry, never heard of Enya. I suppose they are not my kind of gig.
