Night Music and R.I.P. Paddy Moloney

When I first came to Canada and lived for a while up in a motel room in Stewart, I had with me just two or three audio tapes. The “Chieftains 7” was one of them, and it was the one I played the most.

Paddy Moloney, founder and inspiration for the Chieftains, died yesterday at the age of 83. He was an incredible musician and producer, and in every interview and documentary I saw he came across as a wonderfully humble human being. He will be missed.
