Event Details

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 powerfully relatable stories of the human condition resonate beyond the community.

Christy released his new album Flying into Mystery, in November 2021, featuring a collection of twelve songs. Speaking about his latest project, Christy said ‘It has been a very different album recording process this time around…. Since 1969 I have been involved in recording but never with a total absence of live performance.  Since March 2020 all my focus has been on this album.  Once more I’ve been privileged to receive some great songs which kept me well occupied.  I produced with Jim Higgins and David Meade engineered the project. There are songs from Ricky Lynch, Paul Doran, Mick Hanly, Wally Page, Tom Tuohy, Gary Moore, Jim Page and Bob Dylan.  These sit side by side with traditional songs and a couple of my own offerings. …Thanks for listening….’
