How it’s New York: The Chieftains play New Jersey, at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, on Sunday, March 5, with special guests Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy. The night before, Saturday, March 4, they play Queen’s College, the Kupferberg Center, in Flushing, NY. Paddy’s daughter Aedin Moloney is a New York actress, who runs the company Fallen Angels.
How it’s Irish: Um… it’s The Chieftains…

 

I’ve talked to Paddy Moloney several times and it’s always a treat… he tells stories, laughs at his own jokes, and even sings!

In the brand spanking new paper The Montclair Local I wrote up an interview with him, in honor of his playing at NJPAC this Sunday. Here are a few grafs from that piece… catch the rest here!

We have more to share with you from Paddy and hope to get up another piece, or even a podcast, in the coming weeks!
