Thom Moore, although American-born, is probably best known as an Irish songwriter, with hit songs for Mary Black such as Carolina Rua and Prayer for Love, and for Maura O'Connell the likes of The Scholar and Saw You Running, as well as such generally-recorded classics as Cavan Girl. What is probably less well known, except to afficionados, is that his first two records (LUN 001 and 011 on the fledgling Mulligan Records of the late 1970s), Pumpkinhead and Midnight Well, were rave critical successes at release and have become cult classics in European music circles, the latter's re-release on CD getting four stars in Q Magazine. His first real recording since those days was STARC Records' Gorgeous & Bright, completed in 1994, and he has since been working with such great Irish artists as Seamie O'Dowd and Gavin Ralston.

rte radio one broadcast - november 28, 2013
On December 28, 2013, Irish national radio will broadcast a one-hour special, as Ronan Collins presents Thom Moore singing his songs along with a host of national-treasure musicians, at 17.00 GMT.

The concert fills out a lifetime of writing and making music for Thom, these last few years with no-one more supportive of him than the wonderfully eclectic Ronan Collins of RTE. The musicians, who included Gavin and Aongus Ralston, Seamie O'Dowd, Fiachra Trench, Tom Domican, and Noel Eccles, as well as a guest vocal from Australia's Aminah Hughes, all had a grand time, and the original hour-long format was stretched to two hours in an effort to get in as many of Thom's famous-at-least-in-Ireland songs, like Cavan Girl, Carolina Rua, Saw You Running, The Scholar, Prayer for Love, etc., etc. Unfortunately, RTE's rules made it be cut down to the hour to be presented.
