Today legendary singer/song writer Christy Moore announced 10 dates at Dublin’s Vicar Street which will commence on 24th November. The dates, spread across November and December 2021 and January 2002, will be fully seated concerts.
Christy’s new studio album will be released worldwide on 19th November. Featuring twelve songs, Flying into Mystery is a collection that Christy has brought to life through his distinctive writing and unique interpretation of other Artist’s songs.
One of the most compelling and inspirational musicians Ireland has ever seen, Christy has a universal fan base and still continues to entertain, cementing him as an Irish icon. It is his deep urge to connect with the listener and to transmit the meaning of the songs he sings that has endeared him to audiences of all ages. Christy has released more than 25 solo albums, from Paddy on the Road (1969) through to his multi-platinum pair of live albums, On the Road and Magic Nights (2017 & 2019).
Speaking of the new album Christy said, ‘It has been a very different recording process this time around…. Since 1969 I have been involved in recording but never with a total absence of live performance. Since March 2020 all my focus has been on this album. Once more I’ve been privileged to receive some great songs which kept me well occupied. I produced with Jim Higgins and David Meade engineered the project. There are songs from Ricky Lynch, Paul Doran, Mick Hanly, Wally Page, Tom Tuohy, Gary Moore, Jim Page and Bob Dylan. These sit side by side with traditional songs and a couple of my own offerings! I am accompanied by Jim Higgins, Seamie O’Dowd, Gavin Murphy, Mark Redmond, James Blennerhassett and Andy Moore. If regulations permit, I hope to get back out on the road and do some gigs …Thanks for listening….’
