Thread Name: Planxty?
Subject: RE: Planxty?

I was thinking along (sort-of) similar lines that planxties tend not to be mournful since they are tributes to hosts or patrons and it would be unlikely that these people would be happy having mournful songs sung to them in their honour.

Also, the Irish band I referred to earlier is O'Riada.
