VICAR ST., DUBLIN, DE­CEM­BER 10–11, 17 –18 / JAN­UARY 2–3, 8–9 & 14–15

One of the iconic acts in Ir­ish mu­sic, Kil­dare trou­ba­dour Christy Moore plays a stag­ger­ing 10 nights at Vicar St over Xmas and the New Year. Dur­ing his en­vi­able ca­reer, which spans five decades, Christy was a found­ing mem­ber of Celtic rock band Mov­ing Hearts and iconic folk out­fit Planxty, be­fore launch­ing his in­ter­na­tion­ally cel­e­brated solo ca­reer. His most re­cent al­bum, On The Road, marked the first time his great­est hits had been pack­aged to­gether on one re­lease. The songs were recorded live in many in­ter­na­tional venues, with the sin­gle ‘Sail On Jimmy’ by Al­bert Ni­land com­mit­ted to tape in front of 4,000 fans at Cork’s Live At The Mar­quee.
