Live-streamed gig by Irish folk legend Christy Moore kicks off 2021 for fans worldwide

FOLK legend Christy Moore will play a special concert this month, which will be live-streamed from Dublin’s National Concert Hall.

The gig, which takes place on Saturday, January 16, is presented by the National Concert Hall Dublin in partnership with Serious and is supported by The Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.

It is open to fans worldwide, who simply need to purchase a ticket and watch from the comfort of their home.

“Christy Moore has played an integral role in the evolution of music in Ireland,” the organisers explain.

“Aside from his long and productive solo career, he is a founding member of the iconic bands Planxty and Moving Hearts,” they add.

“His songs have travelled around the world with the Irish diaspora and wherever they are played they instil an invaluable sense of home and belonging.

“His powerfully relatable stories of the human condition resonate beyond the community.”

The event will be available to view live for ticketholders and also up to 48 hours after it is recorded.

And the audience is warned to expect the unexpected.

“There's no such thing as a "standard" Christy Moore concert,” they admit.

“When he plays live, he ranges across his own extraordinary body of songwriting, working in songs from the Irish tradition and material that has inspired him.

“What you know is that there will be a powerful thread of social commentary and the sense of a great figure on stage who has inspired so many of the major artists of Ireland today.
