LIVERPOOL Philharmonic Hall hosts a two-night performance from once of the legends of folk music this weekend.

With a successful recording career spanning over 35 years, Christy Moore is one of contemporary Irish music’s best-loved singer/songwriters.

His stature and influence in Irish roots music is unparalleled.

Starting life out as a founder of 70s folk band Planxty and then Moving Hearts in the 80s, Moore is now best-known as a solo folk singer/songwriter, guitarist and bodhran player.

He adds elements of rock and popular music to his well-crafted, tradition-based tunes and has been a major inspiration to modern Irish artists from U2, through Sinead O'Connor to The Pogues.

Christy Moore will be performing alongside Declan Sinnott at the Phil on Friday 30 October and Saturday 31 October.

Tickets still remain for both dates priced £27.50, £30 and £35.
