Christy Moore & Declan Sinnott
15th and 16th January 2013
National treasure and Irish music icon Christy Moore has announced live dates at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre this January, to herald the release of his new album: Folk Tale.
Produced by Declan Sinnott, Folk Tale is the latest result of Christy and Declan’s unique musical alliance. Their long collaboration has gained a loyal and ever increasing following.
The album features 11 tracks and Christy hopes that there will be something on it for everyone. One song argues that “God must be a Woman”, another describes a “Flight to Freedom”. There is a song about The Singing Priests in the Phoenix Park and a song about a bunch of Tulips in Amsterdam.
Elsewhere the songs tackle a wide range of subjects: a murder in East Clare, the Choctaw Indian people coming to Skibbereen, a eulogy to a Mode of Transport in Kildare, and nights spent out in The Naul. There are words from Paula Meehan (the Poet of Dublin) and a song of Tipperary, and from Lancashire comes a beautiful (yet terrible) song called Morecambe Bay.
Other players joining Christy and Declan on the recording include Gerry O’Connor, Tim Edey and Neil Martin with The West Ocean String Quartet.
