  • 1974 - Planxty - Rare TV Performance

    18:21

    A rare performance by a rare Planxty line-up.

    Donal was gone, Johnny was in, Christy was on the way out & Paul was just in......

    Liam Óg Ó'Flynn
    Andy Irvine
    Johnny Moynihan
    Paul Brady
    Christy Moore

    Tracklist:
    Yarmouth Town 0:00
    The Little Drummer
    The Rambles of Kitty
    The Frost is All Over
    Arthur McBride (Paul Brady)

    What Andy had to say about this period Paul Brady had been invited to join Planxty when Donal left in Autumn 1973.

    He declined as he was, at that time, still playing with The Johnstons in the USA and he felt a strong commitment to Adrienne Johnston, who later died a tragic death. We asked him again now, to replace Christy and this time, to our joy, he accepted.

    Paul gave Planxty a big lift. He didn't bring many songs with him though as The Johnstons had become a bit of a middle of the road band by this time. He did, however, bring his version of Arthur McBride and I always remember the first time I heard it in a Donegal pub. I was blown away as everybody has been since!

    1974-75 Before Christy left we played for a month in Edinburgh as a five piece. We had been asked to provide the music for a play called The Fantastical Feats of Finn McCool which was to be a part of the Edinburgh Festival and was staged at the Ice Rink—long gone. We had a tremendous time: playing in one place for a month was a luxury we were not used to!

    Christy duly left and we went on our merry way with our engine room back. We toured all over Europe but exhaustion was setting in.

    By the early summer of 1975, the writing was on the wall: we had to continue because we were now in debt. We had hired an accountant, who shall be nameless, to sort out our Income Tax and without wishing to court libel, I think he took us for a long long ride.

    Tempers became frayed and relationships became strained, nothing personal, we were just at the end of our tether.

    We did one final tour in France with Malicorne and Jean-Pau Verdier. The music was good. My diaries record that we opened the shows—all round France—and went down as well as ever. Johnny recorded this tour in an extremely funny series of cartoons, with limericks attached, that was entitled The Humours of Planxty. I wish I had a copy today!

    Back home, we called a meeting in Des’ office and disbanded. It was a great relief and we adjourned to Madigan’s pub in Donnybrook. We drank to the demise of Planxty, looked at each other and said, ‘’So what do we do now?''.

    Planxty had been my life for three and a half years and now I was back in the mean old world again.

    Since Paul and myself had struck up a particular friendship we decided to stick together and become a duo. At the same time my old friend Alec Finn had asked me to join De Dannan because Dolores Keane had left. So I was in two outfits at the same time, which I should have known was going to be a disaster.

  • Sally Brown - Planxty 1980 Abbey Tavern

    3:01

    Christy springs this request for an old Sweeney's Sea Shanty on Andy which results in everyone cracking up!

    The banter at the start of this video is an edited version of the original 1980 recording, where after Christy asks Do you remember how it goes, Andy goes on at some length to explain how this song was a Sea Shanty and that sailors would sing this in unison whilst Pulling on their Capstans!!!!!
    Donal & Christy found this hilarious and they were obviously in no fit state to continue to play, so to quieten things down, Andy went on to describe how he actually played in The Abbey Tavern, with Sweeney's Men, and in the middle of a long ballad, Johnny Moynihan leaned over to him and whispered, Andy, do you know there's not a single person in the room listening to you.
    He then said that he was delighted that Sweeney's Men were popular today (1980) as nobody was interested back in the 60's.
    After this long introduction, Christy fired back with OK, Andy, off you go!, resulting in them all cracking up again!

  • Planxty As I roved Out

    5:39

    As I roved out on a bright May morning
    To view the meadows and flowers gay
    Whom should I spy but my own true lover
    As she sat under yon willow tree

    I took off my hat and I did salute her
    I did salute her courageously
    When she turned around sure the tears fell from her
    Sayin' False young man, you have deluded me

    A diamond ring I owned I gave you
    A diamond ring to wear on your right hand
    But the vows you made, love, you went and broke them
    And married the lassie that had the land

    If I'd married the lassie that had the land, my love
    It's that I'll rue untill the day I die
    When misfortune falls sure no man can shun it
    I was blindfolded I'll ne'er deny

    And at nights when I go to my bed of slumber
    The thoughts of my true love run in my mind
    When I turned around to embrace my darling
    Instead of gold sure 'tis brass I find

    And I wish the Queen would call home her army
    From the West Indies, Amerikay and Spain
    And every man to his wedded woman
    In hopes that you and I will meet again.

    Planxty in 1980

  • Planxty - Raggle Taggle Gypsy & Tabhair Dom Do Lámh

    4:31

    Planxty is an Irish folk music band consisting initially of Christy Moore (vocals, acoustic guitar, bodhrán), Andy Irvine (vocals, mandolin, mandola, bouzouki, hurdy-gurdy, harmonica), Dónal Lunny (bouzouki, guitars), and Liam O'Flynn (uilleann pipes, tin whistle).

    They quickly revolutionized and popularized Irish folk music, touring and recording to great acclaim.

    Subsequently, Johnny Moynihan, Paul Brady, Matt Molloy (flute), Bill Whelan (keyboards), Nollaig Casey (fiddle) and, briefly, Noel Hill (concertina) and Tony Linnane (fiddle) were also temporary members.

    Lyrics :

    And there were three old gypsies came to our hall door.
    They came brave and boldly-o,
    one sang high and the other sang low,
    And the lady sang the Raggle-Taggle Gypsy-o.

    Upstairs downstairs the lady went,
    Put on her suit of leather-o.
    It was the cry all around the door,
    She's away with the Raggle-Taggle Gypsy-o.

    She gave the gam a glass of wine
    And she gave the dem some brandy
    And the fine gold ring that the lady wore
    She gave it to the Raggle-Taggle Gypsy-o.

    late that night of the lord came in,
    Inquiring for his lady-o.
    And the servant girls she replied to him lord,
    She's away with the Raggle-Taggle Gypsy-o.

    Saddle for me, me milk white steed.
    Me big horse is not speedy-o.
    I will ride and retrieve me bride,
    She's away with the Raggle-Taggle Gypsy-o.

    So he rode east and he rode west.
    He rode north and south also,
    But when he rode to the wide-open field
    It was there that he spied his lady-o.

    Wwhy did you leave your house and your land?
    Why did you leave your money-o?
    Why did you leave your only wedded lord
    All fer the Raggle-Taggle Gypsy-o?

    Yerra, what do I care for me house and me land?
    What do I care for money-o??
    Yerra what do I care for my only wedded lord??
    I'm away with the Raggle-Taggle Gypsy-o.

    It was there Last night you slept in a goose-feather bed
    With blankets drawn so comely-o.
    Tonight you'll lie in a wide-open field
    In the arms of a Raggle-Taggle Gypsy-o.

    Yerra, what do I care for a goose-feather bed?
    What do I care for blankets-o?
    For tonight I'll lie in a wide-open field
    in the arms of me Raggle-Taggle Gypsy-o.

    So he rode east and she rode west.
    He rode high when and I rode low.
    I'd rather have a kiss of the yellow Gypsy's lips
    Than all of your gold and silver-o.

    Here's an old Irish tune by Turlough O'Carolan, largely based on the arrangement by Tony McManus. This is such a gorgeous melody, and I love how well traditional Irish music translates to solo acoustic guitar, with the capo I think it gives the guitar a very harp-like sound.

    Learning this tune was good for the soul ???? hope you enjoy!
