Tonight, the man considered by many to be Ireland’s greatest living musician takes to the stage at the Festival Theatre to celebrate the release of his latest album, Folk Tale.

As with recent visits to the Capital, Moore will be joined by long-term musical partner Declan Sinnot, himself an exceptional soloist.
