Stony Steps

Matt Molloy
Matt Molloy is the best-known traditional flute player in the world. Long before his association with The Chieftains, Matt’s reputation was universally acclaimed among his fellow musicians. His playing is instantly recognisable and has been copied by many, but there is still only one Molloy. This record captures Matt at his brilliant best, accompanied by two other musical legends, Donal Lunny and Arty McGlynn.
