28 Dec-5 Jan 2005. Planxty, featuring Christy Moore, Liam O'Flynn, Andy Irvine and Dnal Lunny, maintain one of Irish music's most important legacies. The group helped to revitalize the Irish music scene at the end of the 1970s with their own blend of folk and traditional Irish songs performed with an oddball line up of instruments such as the bouzouki, mandolin and guitars with uileann pipes, bodhrn and tin whistle. Planxty made acoustic music a beacon for traditional and folk music lovers at a time when rock music and electric performance was considered the only way to progress.
