Hi Christy, great to see the gigs going so well, might see you in Vicar St in January, if I can get a couple of tickets.
Thanks for your candid explanation of how ‘One Voice’ came into being. To think such a thing of beauty can come out of such a troubled time, brilliant.
I also enjoy very much your 1980s songbook, especially Donal’s Intro and the photos. That Colm Henry is a good photographer, he got a grand one of yourself with Andy and Juno on your knees, and Nancy having a cuppa!
Two mentions of the 1980’s songbook here in one day…bit of the old feelgood factor in the air…
An unbelievable night last night.
And what a great audience.
You really were on top form.
I was thrilled to catch up with you.
So pleased to hear and sing along with songs I thought I’d forgotten.
You still have it in spades.
Thanks for last night and have a nice break. You deserve it.
You brought me right back to The Crown & Anchor 1967…Eamon & Gerry and the Almighty Beggarmen givin it stick every Thu night at the back of Picadilly in Suffragette City..
Like you Terry, I felt that we were in a Golden Age …no PA, no Lights, No Vat, No Brexit, No Putin ,No Trump, No Truss..
Harold Wilson was the least of our worries..
I was there the night Luke Kelly dropped in and did a Floor Spot..another night I opened my sweat filled eyes during a song and there was Bet Lynch from Coronation Street in the Front row… no eyes on the stage that night
great to hook up again ..good to know that you are still knockin out the tunes… shine on Terry
Hi Christy, my parents were killed by loyalists in september 1992, we had a 30th anniversary commemoration for them 2 weeks ago. A local singer songwriter wrote called Gerry Cunningham wrote a lovely song for them called the ballad of Charlie and Tess- my parents. I’m an ex republican prisoner and one of my keepsakes from long kesh is the Christy Moore songbook. I want to give it to Gerry as a thank you for writing the song and I wonder could you sign it for him.
we’ll sort that Paddy
The plectrum found it’s rightful new owner….
You’re some man for one man. Memories were made last night that will never be forgotten…… very special gig in more ways than just the Great songs and singing.
Loved hearing Natives again and the Enniskillen Dragoon (2nd oldest song in your Repertoire ? )
We will be talking about last night’s show all the way back to the Glenties.
Tell Ger my Frijiliana magnet is stuck to the fridge
Have you seen this one?
A bit more informal and surrounded by some great people.
I wonder who recorded and uploaded this..
I love it..better than any studio version…
Dan and Myself are thinking of going on the road
Christy, I saw you in the Ardilaun a few years back and I was transported to my parents sitting room when I was 15 and played your cd over and over. You have a way to not only tell a story but take the listener on a journey. You really are a true protector of music. Your versin of beswing blows me away. I hope I get tickets to vicar Street so Ican go on another adventure with you. Keep her lit ✌️
Its been a few years since we hit the Ardilaun…a few scorchers there with Mairtín Ó Connor, Cathal Hayden, Seamie O’Dowd and Jim Higgins….loved playing with that trad outfit….when Mairtín & Cathal took off on a brace reels we could end up anywhere…Inis Meain or Corofin or Knocknagoshel…..it id be up up and away with Dr O’Connor at the helm you could could be bucking in Oranmore one minute and a second later tappin around Tyrone ….one night in the Ardilaune I ended up in an oxygen tent after 7 reels and my bodhrán has never got over it…
there was a lovely version of Beeswing in Bundoran last night…the South Donegal Choir swelled up in tuneful glory and resounded like a musical apparition..I had to stretch it out at the end to try and hang on to the vibration …
OK Alibaba….keep coming back
Alaska, Canada, glaciers, bears, etc.
Having a whale of a time too d’ye’ken?
I see some rave reviews of your shows from fans here CM – congrats & bonza & ripper mate – May your fingers always be swift (don’t sue me B. Dylan)
Have you heard Gordon Lightfoot’s “Circle of Steel” – if you’re hunting around for a yet another song to sing, I can see you reading this one truly
Back to the balcony amid a plethora of US citizens – we all have our cross to bear
Do well, stay well, play well, give ‘em merry hell Christy – many are grateful
Daniel Joseph Francis Harris
DJ Hazzo…’Ken Pal
there was a Family of Bears living on that glacier that sunk thon Titanic..never hear a word about them..
Gordon was a great auld chanter,god be good to him..his singing and playing so defined and distinctive…he was right in there at the very beginning of it all up there in Canada…never caught the man live ..thanks for the reminder
hope you manage to get out from under that cross…its the divvil itself to be haulin around…I know mysel from experience that it can sometimes be of our own making
Bonzo & Ripper…good name for the next duo
Keep rattlin those daggs……Gitser

How’s a going everybody ?
Lately I’ve been reading poguemahone by PatrickMcCabe,
Listening to the box set 1964-2004 by Christy Moore and feeling no pain at all.
I don’t know if there are plans for the collection part three.
Hard to know where to start there has been so much mighty music recorded on stage and in the studio since part two.
But your reading of poor old earth would finish it off nicely.
Preceded by that magic version of vive la quinte brigada from on the road.
I have plans alright
Planning permission is the problem….
do you happen to have any pull in An Bord Pleanála…
Might Paul Hyde be a Folkie ?
Well, I am so excited about the prospect of getting to Vicar Street this year ( hopefully?)
Just got back from holiday in Greece to a wet and dark Todmorden so the news of the gigs has really lifted my spirits.
I was due to go last year with my sister who had been really unwell after contracting Covid.
The rules then changed and we could not go. As it turned out my sister told me she had been feeling that she probably wasn’t really well enough to go and was worried about flying and contracting Covid again, so it was not meant to be at that time.
Luckily after getting a blood clot on her lungs my sister is doing well again so I am really optimistic that we can go together this year to enjoy more wonderful memories listening to your wonderful songs xxx
As it happened
wet and dark perhaps but home nevertheless…manys the night I trundled thru Todmorden before the Motorway went over the top…hope it all works out for you
How does someone go about getting a artist presale for the nights in Vicar Street as we are only over for 3 days and there is only the one gig on the 4th want to make sure my wifes xmas present is sorted?

Thanks to Ed for your thoughts on the harp up for auction. Sound advice. And for your kind words about my Mum.
first time I’ve heard that..thanks for posting
” she is at the gate…waiting for your charity”
Hi Christy, coming to see you live for the first time on the Wed night 5th in Belfast and really looking forward to it. Love before the deluge if there’s a space in your list would be great to hear it. Safe travels.
I’ll have to try and squeeze it in….noble call
Hi, Christy my friend, When I’m miserable I watch your Lockdown Videos and your ballad singing and banter uplifts me. Thanks for sharing your suffering with us.
Good to see you are back on the road. I am in a very dark place but maybe we all are at times. Keep sending the love & forgiveness. Here’s one of my little jokes – just for you and your fans. Slainte!
Paddy walks into a bar and the bartender says “You’re looking intense tonight, Paddy. ” Paddy replies “How did you know that I live in a Wig-Wam?”
May the light shine upon you Francis
Any plans for Vicar Street in December/January? Kathleen
yes…12 gigs over Nov,Dec,Jan…being announced in the next few days..looking forward to it
Rebeccah. Sit in and watch how it goes at auction. Possibility from what you say, would it reach its maximum guide price? Sell for less? But bear in mind in your case what would your shipping costs be? Huge I’d reckon. So that’s an added factor for you. Unless you thought it was going to go cheap and you felt you could do a job on it.
That’s tough news you’ve all got about your Ma. Now she’ll need support which no doubt you’ll be there to help.
