Christy Moore returns to Cavan
Date: Thursday 8th June & Friday 23rd June 2023
Slieve Russell Hotel is pleased to announce the return of one of the most compelling and inspirational musicians in Ireland, Christy Moore.
Popular from his many sell-out concerts, the much-loved performer returns for two shows on 8th & 23rd June 2023, with an intimate evening of story and song.
Christy has played a key part of the evolution of modern Irish music for more than half a century. With his many concerts and recordings, he continues that legacy.
In addition to his long and productive solo career, Christy is also renowned as a founding member of the iconic Irish bands, Planxty and Moving Hearts who transformed and popularised folk, rock and traditional music in Ireland in 1970s and ‘80s .
Named ‘Ireland’s greatest living musician’ (in 2007) by RTE’s People of the Year Awards, Christy is widely regarded as a superb interpreter of songs by other musicians as well as being a compelling solo performer and songwriter of his own work. Elvis Costello, U2’s Bono, and Sinéad O’Connor are just three of the modern music greats who have been influenced by Moore. His songs and stories are both powerful and relatable, resonating with the audiences at home and around the world. 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. His recording career includes more than 40 albums from Paddy on the Road (1969), Magic Nights (2019) and the chart-topping The Early Years, covering his recordings and television appearances from 1969-1981 to his latest Flying into Mystery (2021).
Join us for a special night of song with one of the most compelling and inspirational musicians Ireland has ever seen.
