December 11th-12th & 19th- 20th December
National treasure and Irish music icon Christy Moore has announced extra live dates for 2013.
Christy began 2012 with 3 sell out shows at Dublin’s Grand Canal Theatre, followed by a televised performance at the BBC Folk Awards in February, where his rendering of Morecambe Bay, Kevin Littlewood’s description of Chinese cockle pickers caught unawares by the rising tide, was nominated for Best Original Song.
In the spring, Christy and Declan appeared in a series of dates around Ireland, before embarking on a 10 day tour of the UK which included two sell out shows at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
On their return to Ireland, they kicked off the summer with an appearance at the Live at the Marquee concert series. This marked their 8th successive year performing in the Cork tent, the only artists who can claim that annual feat.
July found them delivering a rousing stand-up set to a packed audience in the Big Top at the Galway Arts Festival.
The big summer shows were rounded out by their exhilarating performance in front of a euphoric crowd in the Crawdaddy tent at this year’s Electric Picnic.
