Christy on top form
We saw Christy Moore in Bristol last night, his first visit to the city for three years. Playing with the brilliant Declan Sinnott, Christy was on top form taking us through classics like Ride On, Nancy Spain and City of Chicago in fine voice. He also played some old Moving Hearts numbers, reminding me of when I first saw them at UCD in 1982. Christy is clearly back on top form after his few years' enforced break. One particularly good feature of last night's concert was that Christy played a 1h 45 minute set from 8pm without interval or support. While it may disappoint some who have try-outs through being support artists, this is far better for the concert-goer. Don't miss the chance to see him live in his later concerts this year.
