Paddy Moloney, 1938-2021: R.I.P.

Paddy Moloney, the Uillean Piper and leader of the Irish roots band The Chieftains, has passed on at age 83.
A funny anecdote - - when my son was an infant, I used to play Mike Oldfield records all the time on the stereo. Two of them featured Uillean Pipe solos by Moloney. When the sound of the pipes began, my son would screw his face up and scream. Don't know why.
