A performance from the Irish singer Christy Moore. Christy Moore has been a key figure in Irish roots music for more than four decades, whether with trad supergroup Planxty, the folk, jazz and rock fusion outfit Moving Hearts, or as a compelling solo performer.
The archetypal Irish poet and protest singer, Christy's stature and influence in folk music is unparalleled, and his music has influenced a wide range of musicians, including Bono, Elvis Costello, Billy Bragg, Sinead O'Connor and The Pogues. In 2007 he was named as Ireland's greatest living musician in Radio Telefis' Eireann's People of the Year Awards.
He returns to Royal Festival Hall performing with Declan Sinnott.
