Moving Hearts Live at the National Concert Hall
Head over to the National Concert Hall on July 9 and 10 to watch Moving Hearts play live!
Formed in 1981, Irish Celtic rock band Moving Hearts started playing together live in Dublin's Baggot Inn. That first line-up comprised of Christy Moore, Donal Lunny, Declan Sinnot, Eoghan O'Neill, Brian Calnan, Keith Donald and Davy Spillane. The band attracted huge attention for its blending of the varied musical influences of its members; as well as its commentary in the songs sung by Christy Moore on issues of concern in the areas of human rights and political skullduggery. They ceased touring in 1984.
After an absence of 20 years, Moving Hearts reformed in 2007 with a series of sold out concerts in Dublin's Vicar Street. In the summer of 2015, they played the inaugural Killarney Folk Festival and again in 2016 appeared at sold-out shows in Dublin's Olympia Theatre and Glasgow Celtic Connections.
The band's line-up for these special appearance at the National Concert Hall will include a stellar roster of many of Ireland’s finest musicians: Donal Lunny (bouzouki), Davy Spillane (uilleann pipes and low whistles), Keith Donald (sax and bass clarinet), Eoghan O’Neill (bass), Noel Eccles (percussion), Anthony Drennan (guitars), Liam Bradley (drums), Graham Henderson (keyboards) and special guest Mick Hanly (vocals).
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Thursday 14 March and are available here.
