Mixing the traditional Irish folk sounds with the (then) emerging sounds of rock’n’roll, Christy Moore emerged in the late 1960s as a shining new voice in Irish music.
Since then he has carved out an extremely consistent career, both as a solo artist and with his bands, Planxty and Moving Hearts. Credited as a major influence on artists such as U2, The Pogues and Sinead O’Connor, Christy continues to tour and record and the dynamism of his performances, as demonstrated on his live albums Live in Dublin, At the Point: Live and Live at Vicar Street, is not to be missed.
Christy Moore with Declan Sinnott, Donal Lunny and Jim Higgins will perform Vicar_Street on 13th of March 2019. This show will be in memory of Tim Martin and in aid of The Irish Hospice Foundation.
