An immense gig at the City Hall last night, Christy. “Little Musgrave” was a fabulous opener (especially as I’d heard Fairport do “Matty Groves” to end their set in February at the Sage). However my particular favourites were “Tyrone Boys” & “Ordinary Man.” Shame no “Spancillhill,” but here’s notice to ask for it next time. Also, I was moved from Row C, which was apparently closed at your request (so the venue said) back to Row H. Why was that?
During the sound check I realised that some of the front row seats were visually impaired by monitors. I did it as I was concerned for those in the front row. I regret any inconvenience caused you. Spancilhill is an elusive gem, the air has to be right
Just tremendous last night Christy. From all the members of the Tyneside No1 CSC. thanks for a brilliant night. Fantastic way to end the weekend, with today to recover.
Daniel O`Donnells MBE will live with me forever. Thanks again
thanks for your note …..heres to the double
Hi Christy. Attended your gig at Newcastle City Hall. You are some guy. Made a lot of people very happy. Loved the opener LITTLE MUSGRAVE. Whole set was fantastic. I take it that the song Declan performed will be on his solo album? Finally, I must apologise……….I was the one who yelled out for JOXER. Can’t wait for you to hit these parts again.
“Sun Shine In” will be on Declan’s forthcoming album….thanks for a great night..ye were a brilliant audience
Sweet Music Roll On…just takes my breath away, so gorgeous…all of all these jewels I’m finding in the Christy Moore treasure chest.
The river runs deep, Sweet Music Roll On
Thank you so much for playing Sweet Thames Flow Softly last night at a wonderful concert in Liverpool. To hear that and your beautiful rendition of John O Dreams for Barney McKenna made for yet another amazing evening in your and Dec’s company. Totally uplifting -thank you.
it was our pleasure….thank you
can’t wait for gig tonight! Could you dedicate smoke and strong whiskey to Liam Kelly?
Kelly is 16, barely a man…..
Home now from Liverpool, and have booked tickets for Edinburgh – see you there! Tell me what Cockermouth pasties you like and I’ll bring you some!
last had them in 1969….whats on the menu?
hi Christy. Just driven down from Edinburgh to Newcastle for tonights gig and very much looking forward to it. It’s a treat for my wife Barbara who has been working hard and so deserves it. If you could play her something and give her a shout out I know she would be thrilled. She loves Nancy Spain. All the best. Brian
its one of my favourite roads that..hope you got home safe
Fantastic night at the Phil last night. Laughed my head off at times and loved listening to Little Musgrave, it was just like being read a story.
Thanks so much for your time afterwards for a chat and a photo (and a hug!)
It’s made my week
love to all our listeners in The North End
just watched Munster getting beaten by Ulster ( Boered maybe)…..getting ready for the finale of this tour, what better place then here upon The Mighty Tyne…a City full of song birds and troubadours…then the rush for Holyhead to try and be home for the breakfast in Dún Laoghaire on Easter Monday morning, a great tour for us, thanks for all your support and greetings to all 4711ers still standing….I suppose you’ll be cruising round Lixnaw tomorrow evening or maybe even above in Camp
the above was a reply to a post from Hilary which has mysteriously disappeared…the site may have a few gremlins
Love reading about these concerts. You and the fans bring them to life here. Your generosity is a beautiful thing to behold. Wishing you the best concert yet, and I’m applauding with all of you, listening from the very very back row, thousands of miles away.
will write about the tour in the next Chat…its such a whirligig….blazing around from City To City…listeners everywhere to raise us up..beautiful venues…never aspired to such heights but while they’re here we must try and make the best of this bounty, play as best we can and truly enjoy it while it lasts..thank you
Hiya Christy, fantastic night at the Phil, had great 2nd row seats and the atmosphere was amazing, flyin on the Honda 50 and lovin the craic from you and Deccy, lovely to hear John O’Dreams live, spellbound, appreciate the signatures on ‘one voice’ after the show and the photos – despite the camera playin up !

Fantastic night at the philharmonic last night, brought a friend whod never seen the man himself before, they were highly impressed.
Looking forward to declans gigs and debut album.
as were the men themselves
Hi Christy, travelled down from Cumbria yesterday to see you and Declan at the Phil- what a fantastic show. Thank you both very much for sharing your beautiful songs and musicianship with us. X
must return to Troutbeck, Whitehaven, Windermere, Cockermouth (what pasties!),Barrow, before the lakes run dry…
Christy what can I say a 160 round mile trip and so worth it. A new song from Deccy.. lovely set of songs well chosen…well sung. A Neil Young first..all that was missing was the Eurovision entry…Dervish! See you in York in the Autumn
you said it all there Steve….I like that Dervish rhythm section
Hi All. The Phil was fada amach…this IS as good as it gets,,,,,one more and ye can head home… Mile, mile buiochas. H
Just a wee thank you for tonight Christy. Yourself and Declan were top notch and tonight has to be the best I’ve seen you at the Phil’. Too many great moments but ‘Little Musgrave’ was a grand thing. I live that song everytime I hear it and tonight was the first time in person, magic
Great concert tonight Christy – many thanks to you and Declan. Lots of very thoughful songs on the list among the old favourites and the new ones from the latest CD. Six years ago you sang for my oldest grand-daughter at the Bridgewater Hall, tonight our next grand-daughter came with us to enjoy the Philharmonic atmosphere and keep the tradition going. There’s two more still to come and hear you sing so please keep the concerts going! Lovely to sing along with you – loved to hear Four Strong Winds again.
thanks Chris…we’ll try and keep going until you have all your grand children on board ! Shine On
