Subject: RE: What's a Planxty?
I learned in music that blind harpers would come to the rich peoples houses or where they lived and they would play music for money a planxty was like planxty o shes or planxty o Sullivan it is a piece of music written about a certain lord and it is a poem telling people of his great life and work.
