f Christy Moore is one of the most

important singers in the great revival oi traditional irish music which has taken

it back into the mainstream of popular

culture. Way back in 1971 his recording : Prosperous set the tone oi the iolk

music scene for the next decade. With

Liam D’Flynn, Donal Lunny and Andy lrvine he iormed Planxty, then aiter a

: long solo spell, Moving Hearts— a real

iusion oi idioms - uiilean pipes and

saxophone, electric guitar, bass, drums et ai. Like Scotland's Dick i Gaughan his singing is rooted in the

ballads and the songs oi the torn and 19th centuries but he has many recently written ones pointing up the

injustices and Insanity in his country

and the world. No one can be in any

doubt where his sentiments ile. Christy is taking his guitar, his

bodhran, his good humour and great

voice to the Pavilion, Glasgow, on 14
