Christy Moore has played an integral role in the evolution of music on this island. Aside from his long and productive solo career, he is a founding member of the iconic bands Planxty and Moving Hearts.
His songs have travelled around the world with the Irish diaspora and wherever they are played they instill an invaluable sense of home and belonging. His powerfully relatable stories of the human condition resonate beyond the community.
His recording career includes more than 40 albums from Paddy on the Road (1969) to Magic Nights (2019) and the recently released chart-topping The Early Years, covering his recordings and television appearances from 1969-1981.
Christy says, “Every gig develops its own atmosphere, every audience being a unique gathering of listeners. It’s 50 years this year since I released my first album. I have deep gratitude for the mystery of it all. At work I’m surrounded by a great team of comrades. Their talents and vital contributions keep the show on the road.
Each night at 8.05 we stand side stage, breathe in the air of expectancy, the intoxicating waft of perfume and after shave. The crew complete their final checks, the lights go down and out we go once more to face the Music. Thank You for listening, One and All.”
Join us for a special night of song with one of our most beloved national icons.
