Yesterday Paddy Maloney of the Chieftans passed over at 83. He was a master musician and arranger. He originaly did mostly tradional Irish music called Trad in Ireland. Later he branched into other styles and collaborated with many different musicians such as Van Morrison **** Jagger and many US folk and country musicians. He also put a Irish spin on all.
One more. This is the Chieftans and **** Jagger and the Stones. Maloney was well respected as a arranger and seemed to be able to get all types of musicians to play with him. From Jagger and Daltry to Nancy Griffith
