When Moving Hearts reformed in 2007 after an absence of 20 years their series of sold out concerts in Dublin’s Vicar Street were described as “Breath-taking and Powerful”. One reviewer of the subsequent DVD said “This is one of the most spirited and mind blowing performances ever captured on film”.
When asked why MH had reformed in 2007 one band member described it as “Unfinished business”, “when we last played it was as an instrumental band and we always felt we hadn’t finished exploring the possibilities of our unique line-up”. The following two years saw acclaimed concerts around the world from the Festival Hall in London to The Royce Hall in UCLA and the major Festivals and Concert Halls of Europe.
