Premier live music venue, Forum Waterford, is delighted to announce that Christy Moore and Declan Sinnott return to the Glen for a one-off 2012 date on Friday 26th October.
Generations of Irish people have grown up with Christy as one of their defining voices, while at the same time knowing him as an activist, social commentator and iconic national treasure. Accompanied by sublime guitarist Declan Sinnott, as he has been for the last six years, there is a beauty to the arrangements that matches the silky majesty of his voice.
Without set list and with frequent and spontaneous switches of pace and mood, songs about division and reconciliation in the north of Ireland, (North And South), of indignation and social injustice (Go, Move, Shift) and of childlike charm and delight (Reel in the Flickering Light) all demonstrate his wonderful storytelling.
It is all done with a sensitivity, intelligence and subtlety that justifies his status, but then with over five thousand gigs under his belt over a forty year career, Christy has clearly developed a sixth sense for the effects of a song, for the prevailing vibe and the means of amusing, challenging, provoking and ultimately pleasing any assortment of souls. This is a man who has sung solo in Carnegie Hall, on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury, who once sold out Ireland's biggest indoor venue the Point Depot for a record breaking twelve nights, a man with an armoury of songs from every age which he can make relevant and vital to today.
Tickets priced at €40 (Service charge applies) are available from Next Door Forum Waterford, 051-871133 or online at http://www.forumwaterford.com
