Christy Moore has been a musical touchstone in Ireland through the last four decades, an entry point to traditional Irish music for many ,a storyteller who has provided a narrative of the changes on the island, and a master interpreter of great contemporary song writers as diverse as Shane McGowan and Jackson Browne.
