Christy's new album will be out 28 October 2011
which will include 11 songs. Some old and some new tracks. I'm sure the Honda 50 song will be included. The name of the new album is Folk Tale.
 
If you've sheet music notes, mandolin or banjo tabs for any Christy Moore songs, send them to me please. all the tablature here has been kept easy, mostly three chords. If you ever get a chance to go see Christy Moore play, don't hesatate, he puts on a wonderful show. I've been a fan for years and seen him play yonks of times, Christy was one of the reasons for me learning the guitar in the first place. You can read more of what I've to say about Christy at the bottom of the following link Black Is The Colour Lyrics chords

Success
Everything has changed, yet everthing remains the same.
It's about the songs, if I end up back in the van
playing small folk clubs, I'll still be content doing
what I love to do and that's singing these songs.
This working life I have is about songs. It's been a marvlious journey and thankfully it's still continuing.
I view sining songs as a form of meditation because when I'm
singing I go in somewhere and certain when I'm singing to
an audience. I get locked into something, I feel as if I'm 
unavailable when I'm in a song and I have grown very comfortable
with that feeling and I kind of like it.

Christy's First Recording
The first thing I done when I went to England, well I started work
on the Oil Rigs and stayed long enough to get a decent guitar.
I bought a Yamaha guitar around the time I started going to folk
clubs. I started the folk clubs around 1967 and found me way around. The Grehan Sisters from Boyle Co. Roscommon were very good
to me in England, they brought me around with them and let me
play support to them. That opened a lot of doors for me.
A year later I met Dominic Behan at a benifit concert for
the Northern Ireland civil rights and I was invited to sing, Dominic was
the star of the show and he lked what I sang, he invited me back to 
his house and I spent a few days there with Dominic. He said,
I'm going to make a record with you, and in those days it wasnt easy to
get a record made. Six of the tracks were my songs and 6 were Dominic's
songs, that was the deal. The first song I ever recorded was Connolly Was There.

The First Interview
As far as I'm concerned there's no real folk scene in Ireland, as there is in England says Christy Moore as we setteled ourselves comfortable with pints in the sunshine outside a Fleet Street pub. There no interest in a folk scene, I think the basic difference between Ireland and over here is that in Ireland the clubs are run by the publicans to make money. In England they are run by people who want to hear the music. I think that of all the money that goes into the Irish folk scene the preformers get the least of it. For the past two years Christy has been working on the British folk circuit, basing himself in Halifax Yorkshire. Christy comes from a musical family but his first real inspiration as far as folk music is concerned were the Clancy Brothers whome he heard when he was 15. All the best songs I sing I colected myself Christy told me but I also sing a lot of Dominic Behan songs and I'd like to make an l.p. of his songs some day. As far as the colecting is concerned I did not get the songs from anywhere in particular. I know a few songs from the area I came from, Kildare, but that part of the country isn't renouned for singing. I did colect a lot from Tipperary and Clare. Christy has just completed his first record for Mercury Records and with Robin Hall and Jimmy McGragor and songwriter David Campbell, is one of the first folk singers to be singed to the label. Titled ''Paddy On The Road'' , it will be released before the end of the year. Among the songs that Christy has recorded are, Cunla, Curragh Of Kildare, Father McFadden, James Larkin, Avondale and Maid Of Athy. Backing is supplied by Ray Swinfield on flute, guitars Danny Wright and Ike Isaacs and Jack Fallon on bass. Steve Benbow arranged the songs and was the musical director as well as playing the guitar on the sessions. I was really surprised with the l.p. says Christy, I was reluctant at first to use the backing but when I heard the tapes I was pleased and I did enjoy the sessions. It was time for Christy to go then. He finished his pint, bade me farewell and disappeared into the lounch time crowd. Paddy Was Back On The Road.

The Voyage

Where I Come From

Christy Moore On Guitar

Christy On The Clancy Brothers.
We got a record of The Clancy Brothers and then we heard
they were going to be playing in The Gaiety up in Dublin.
I managed to get 2 tickets and meself and Turlock came up
to the Gaiety and it was the most amazing gig I was ever at in my life.
It was just stunning, the reason being is that we had being listening
to Radio Luxinburg and rock and roll and suddendly you had these 4 guys with one microphone, Tommy Makem, three Clancy Brothers
singing in our landguage, our dialect, singing songs that were
local, but it was cool, it was rock and roll, it was real and exciting
in a way rock and rool couldn't be because it had our dialect
Shortly after the Gaiety I was at a fleadh cheoil in Bunclody.
Liam Clancy was on the street with a croud around him singing 
The Leaving Of Liverpool.
