It was traditional for travelling musicians in Ireland to compose music named for individuals or families of influence that they met on their journeys. These tributes were known as planxties. Planxty Kelly celebrates that tradition. Written in response to the tremendous generosity of her community, Planxty Kelly is a tribute to a young woman whose all too brief life touched family, friends, teachers and fellow musicians in countless and memorable ways. Traditional Irish tunes have been arranged to honour Kelly's Irish-American heritage and love of both singing and dancing. For treble voices in two parts (SA) and piano, with optional fiddle, flute or whistle.
