The Irish folk legend, Christy Moore, is continuing his prolific touring career at the Royal Festival Hall next week.

His new album, 'Listen' is out now and features 13 tracks recorded over the last two years in Ireland and Scotland.

Since his last studio album (Burning Times, 2005) Moore has been performing about 60 concerts a year.

After London he will perform in Manchester, Birmingham, Ireland and Scotland.

Moore, who has been delighting audiences for decades recently said: "I'd like to thank all those writers whose songs I have been singing all my life. Passing time has left many of them anonymous but their songs still resound today.

"It is the ultimate test when a song long survives any memory of its author's name. Be it Zozimus or Dylan, Wally Page or Hank Wedell, I have always preferred to sing good songs from other writers than lesser songs written by myself."

Monday May 25 and Tuesday May 26 at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre

Belvedere Road, SE1; for tickets call 0871 663 2500 or visit: www.seetickets.com
