Event: Christy Moore
Venue: Gorey Little Theatre, Gorey, Co.Wexford
Date(s): 5th November 2021
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 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.
