Christy Moore has announced he will play a series of shows at Vicar Street starting in November.
Folk icon Christy Moore has announced he will be playing 11 shows at Vicar street later this year: three in November, three in December, and five in January.
The Kildare native has played at Vicar street many times, including in support of his two multiplatinum live albums, On the Road in 2017 and Magic Nights in 2019.
His most recent gig at Vicar street, a fundraiser for the housing charity, Focus Ireland, took place earlier this month. Moore has been an outspoken advocate for addressing the housing crisis in Ireland, and a vocal supporter of the "Everyone Should Have a Home" campaign on Twitter.
The singer has been a prominent feature in the Irish folk scene for decades, releasing 30 solo albums over the course of his career since 1969.
