Hi Christy .. watched your performance on rte the other night ..was a good song to sing and an interesting programme… Great to hear a new album on the way roll on.. see you in Westport Adam
“Green Book” is very good
I want to thank you so much for singing One last cold kiss (2 island swans) in memory of my sister Pauline at the gig in Mullingar on February 15th. It meant so much to me. It was a fabulous gig, I had not seen Cathal before and he is a great addition. Also, I heard 2 songs that were new to me – loved Sail on Jimmy and have told me friends that when I go (may it be a long time from now!) that is how I want to be celebrated! My first visit to Ireland was with my Dad when I was 17 to go to his brother’s funeral. At the wake, my cousin (who I had never met before) tried to get off with me – so the bit about “grabbing the arse” really made me remember that incident from nearly 50 years ago! The other new song for me was the great one that Declan requested at the encore!
Looking forward to Tullamore, where my brother in law Stuart will be with me.
I love that song…it features occasionally and always stills the night…singing it for your late Sister added to its poignancy..
Cathal brings new colours to the Band….he has been playing music all his life….Although Trad Irish is his primary music, he has played with many singers in different genres. He brings that experience and musicality into our combo to great effect..
Interesting to read of you wake experience…wild musical wakes are few and far between these days..I recall a few great nights from earlier times..that song “Sail On Jimmy” (aka “Irish Pagan Ritual”) was written by Albert Niland ……
the other song you mention, “Ringing The Bell”, written by Rob Corcoran…both songs will feature on an album scheduled for release in November…
see you in County Offaly
I have just heard that I will be in Ireland the period of 27-30 March. One of my favourite artist of all time is Christy Moore and so every time I come to Ireland I look to see if there is a chance he might be giving a concert. I see that Friday 29th there is a concert, but that its sold out. Is there a waiting list anywhere?
hope you have a good visit
Good man Christy. Thank you for your advice about slowing the song down, I tried it and your 100% right. With the lyrics I have written it makes the song feel more mellow and brings the lyrics to the fore. Its brilliant to be able to send my song to you for feed back. Thank you. I will repost and let you hear it slowed down when I get it recorded. Paddy.
