Thanks, Peter.

Even if you have all Planxty's stuff (like me), you could consider buying the the recent two-disc retrospective Between The Jigs And Reels. One disc is a well-filled CD with a great Planxty selection (it gets played more than anything else in my car) and the other is an incredibly good and very long DVD containing previously unreleased RTE footage of Planxty at their finest. If you have tears...

With great sadness. He was an inspiration. There are some magical things on the Internet. I have added his name to the Mudcat Hall of Fame. My condolences to all who know and love him.

RIP

He did a solo gig in the back room of the Tree Inn Folk Club one night in the early '90s. I suppose there must have been about 30 of us there. I got him to play The Maid Of Ballingarry/Stack Of Barley, a set that was on The Fire Aflame album. As a harmonica player I couldn't get my head round that air but I must have played "his version" of the hornpipe a thousand times since (though you know how it goes...). I remember also a cracking version of Jenny's Wedding, one of those damned awkward ones with both Cs and C sharps! He was a wicked whistle player too. And a lovely, reserved, self-effacing man. 72 is no age these days.

Desperate news, what a loss to traditional music. I never met Liam or saw him in concert but his enthusiasm for the music was palpable and inspirational .....peace and comfort to his family RIP.
