Following the success of two sold out shows in 2018, Christy Moore will return to the National Concert Hall this summer.
One of Ireland's most compelling and inspirational musicians, Christy's career spans five decades. It is his deep urge to connect with the listener and to transmit the meaning of the songs he sings that has endeared him to audiences of all ages. A founding member of Moving Hearts and iconic folk group Planxty, Christy has released more than 25 solo albums, from Paddy on the Road in 1969 to his latest album On the Road, released in 2017.
Featuring 24 songs across two discs, On The Road is the collection of songs that Christy has made his own through more than 50 years of live touring. Recorded in venues from London to Westport, and from Glasgow to Galway, the album features new songs, as well as many perennial live favourites. This is the first time all of Christy’s biggest songs have been available on one album.
Tickets for Christy's National Concert Hall gig on June 19 start at €35, and go on sale this Thursday, March 21, at 10am, or March 20 for NCH Friends. See nch.ie for more information.
