"What Woody Guthrie was to America, Christy Moore is to Ireland."

"His great voice, his choice of the best songs by some of Ireland's great 'unknown' writers, together with the wit and passion of his own fine songwriting make him the most powerful Irish 'Folk' Singer today."

Jackson Browne


"Christy Moore has the sweet voice of an old and dangerous friend."

Elvis Costello


"He's the greatest living Irishman."

Shane McGowan
