NSC Uh-h-h Planxty? (35) RE: Uh-h-h Planxty? 30 Apr 01

Chrisy Moore started out during a bank strike in Ireland in the early sixties.

He started on the UK folk club circuit and assisted in the great folk revival in the UK.

But there was never a revival in Ireland. This is because the tradition NEVER died and did not need reviving. However Christy was instrumental in making trad songs more popular and is very well regarded for his work.

He was a the leading force in the group Planxty which was a very popular group and also in the folk rock group Moving Hearts.

He is now in retirement following heart problems although he surfaces now and again.

He deserves his fame because he has worked so hard over the years.
