Thread Name: What's a Planxty?
Subject: RE: What's a Planxty?
All I know is that I wouldn't be here on this forum, or on TheSession, or playing Irish tunes on the harmonica, or be loving Irish music almost as much as I love my life, or going out there and drinking gallons of free beer and playing in sessions in a totally symbiotic relationship with pub and people, or arguing with Teribus and Keith, were it not for a vinyl record I bought in the late 70s that had four tracks by the band of the name referred to in the thread title. One day Kirsty will have me on Desert Island Discs, and, when she does, one of my tracks will be Raggle Taggle Gypsy-Give Me Your Hand.
