Christy Moore is Ireland’s premier singer-songwriter of folk music. The former lead-vocalist and chief songwriter of Planxty and Moving Hearts, Moore helped to bring the musical traditions of Ireland up to modern standards and has been a major inspiration to many other artists.

1972 brought his first major release, Prosperous, Moore is best known for his political and social commentary which reflects a left-wing, Irish republican perspective,

He was inspired as a teenager by American Rock & Roll, moving to Britain in the 60s to busk on the streets, while extending his repertoire. When he returned to Ireland later in the decade, Moore released his debut album, “Paddy On The Road”.

Moore assembled a band that evolved into Planxty, bringing together diverse and skilled musicians Donal Lunny, Liam O’Flynn and Andy Irvine. It later evolved into Moving Hearts;

The success of “Listen”’ released in 2009 – 40 years after his debut album release – reaffirmed Christy Moore’s universal fan base, cementing him as an Irish icon and as one of the most compelling and inspirational musicians Ireland has ever produced.
