Christy Moore – 10 May: Christy Moore returns to the Clanree Hotel this Friday. Mixing traditional Irish folk sounds with rock‘n’roll, Christy emerged in the late 1960s as a shining new voice in Irish music. Since then, he has carved out an extremely consistent career, both as a solo artist and with his bands, Planxty and Moving Hearts. Credited as a major influence on artists such as U2, The Pogues and Sinead O’Connor, Christy Moore is truly a national treasure. Tickets available on www.ticketmaster.ie.
