“Fiach Moriarty is one of Ireland’s most talented singer-songwriters.” - Paul Brady

Fiach Moriarty began to learn the violin at school in Inchicore aged 5. He says that he grew up with traditional Irish folk music in the home but was also influenced by Mozart and Beethoven, due to his mother’s piano playing. At the age of 12, he received his first guitar as a birthday gift and began writing songs, influenced by Nirvana and The Beatles.

“I was rendered speechless by his voice and songwriting. There was nothing I could say to this artist. Lyrically and musically, he is one of the best singer/songwriters around.” - Chris White (The Zombies)

Fiach Moriarty's song writing talents have earned him invitations to collaborate with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, Paul Brady, Declan O'Rourke and Eddi Reader and appear as host and musician in the 6-part Virgin Media musical travel show Jingle Jangle alongside Fiachna Ó Braonáin (Hothouse Flowers) and Jim Lockhart (Horslips).

“Fiach has it all; a beautiful voice, great guitarist, honest heart-warming lyrics that are visual and paint pictures that take you somewhere and teach you things, sublime melodies and an amazing live performer.” - Damien Dempsey

Most recently, Fiach has recorded and performed with Harry Connick Jr, Mundy, Marti Pellow (Wet Wet Wet), Christy Dignam (Aslan), Chesney Hawkes, Úna Healy, Brian Kennedy, John Sheahan (Dubliners), Paddy Moloney (Chieftains), David Geraghty (Bell X1) and appeared on Other Voices with the Grammy-nominated Beoga.

Advance tickets available from Eventbrite.

“A real music man with an openness and bravery I rarely hear. When I hear Fiach sing I enjoy every note” - Eddi Reader

To date Fiach has previously released two albums: So I (2010) and The Revolution (2015). As of March 2023, Fiach’s cover version of E.L.O.'s Mr. Blue Sky has amassed in excess of 60 million views on TikTok. Fiach also plays guitar with trad-fusion supergroup ALDOC and the ground-breaking, genre-inventing Horslips.
