2015/Ireland (60 min)
Director: Liam McGrath

An intimate and revealing portrait of Irish traditional music icon Paddy Moloney.

In the latest in his series of documentaries about leading figures in traditional Irish music, award-winning director Liam McGrath turns his cameras on Chieftain Paddy Moloney. In a series of intimate interviews and specially-recorded performances and collaborations, Moloney reflects on his own personal journey, and the music and people that shaped it.

"The documentary is an affectionate study of one of Ireland's most significant and, indeed prolific musicians. Made by Liam McGrath, who has also delivered beguiling programmes on Finbar Furey and The Dubliners' John Sheahan, it offers a reminder of the importance of Moloney and The Chieftains in helping to popularise traditional Irish music all over the world". - Irish Independent November 2015
