One of this summer’s biggest blockbusters, King Arthur, has a very strong, yet subtle, Irish influence. Moya Brennan, former lead singer in Clannad who was interviewed in the June/July issue of Irish America, features prominently on the film’s soundtrack. Lending her signature ethereal and timeless sound, Brennan contributes vocals and co-wrote some of the music with the composer Hans Zimmer. Adding to the Irish feel of the movie is the location – most of the film was shot in County Wicklow. ♦
