The Chieftains 9; Boil The Breakfast Early is his first album with the Chieftains. Matt Molloy comes from a strong musical background, of the famed fiddle and flute playing tradition of North Connacht. Before joining the Chieftains, Matt was already known as an accomplished flautist playing with a number of groups and session artists. rnrnMatt was born in Ballaghadereen, County Roscommon, an area well known for flute players. Matt began playing the flute at age 8 and by the age of 18, he had won the All-Ireland Flute Championship and had a string of successes in National Fleadh Cheoil and Oireachtas. He moved to Dublin in the mid 1960\'s where he started playing in the music scene and became acquainted with Paddy Moloney. He was invited to join The Chieftains in 1979. rnrnDuring the burgeoning folk scene of the 1970\'s, Matt was a founding member of the famous folk group, The Bothy Band. After the Bothy Band, Matt appeared briefly with the reformed group, Planxty. Matt has released several highly acclaimed solo albums and has worked with other accomplished musicians. He has teamed up with Paul Brady, Tommy Peoples, Micheál Ó Súilleabháin, Dónal Lunny and the Irish Chamber Orchestra among other artists. rnrnIn addition to playing, Matt owns a pub in Westport, County Mayo, Ireland called Matt Molloy\'s, where he has recorded a live session album. His pub is well known for having sessions including many different musicians. rnrnrnrnJohn Carty rnJohn Carty is one of Ireland\'s finest traditional musicians having been awarded TG4\'s Traditional Musician of the Year in 2003. He joins previous acclaimed winners Matt Molloy (Chieftains flautist), Tommy Peoples (Master Fiddler), Mary Bergin (whistle player, Dordan), Máire Ní Chathasaigh (Harpist) and Paddy Keenan (Uilleann Piper), all of whom are considered to be the leading exponents of their instruments within the Irish tradition. rnrnCarty already has three solo fiddle albums, two banjo albums, two group albums and a sprinkling of recorded tenor guitar and flute music recordings under his belt so it\'s little wonder he should have joined such elusive ranks. rnrnBorn in London, fiddler John Carty has established himself among the elite in Irish traditional music and as a staunch supporter of its preservation. Carty developed his love for fiddle, banjo, and flute, all of which he has mastered, through his multi-instrumentalist father who was a member of the Glenside Ceili Band in London in the 1960\'s. rnrnAt the age of 16 Carty found himself playing in sessions with some of Irish music\'s finest and he began to entertain the thought of relocating to Ireland. Soon after settling in Boyle, Co Roscommon, Carty released his 1994 debut banjo album, The Cat that Ate the Candle to positive reviews. rnrnThis led to his first fiddle album, Last Night\'s Fun, released on Shanachie Records in 1996. This album has been described as a milestone in recorded fiddle music. In 1997 he formed At the Racket, a fun, loose, free-spirited dance band named after an old Flanagan Brothers 78 rpm. The group recorded two highly acclaimed CDs, "At the Racket" (RR001) and "Mirth Making Heroes" (RR003) and toured all the major European festivals. rnrnIn 2000 he teamed up with guitarist Arty McGlynn and began work on his second fiddle release, "Yeh, That\'s All It Is". His third record for Shanachie, At It Again, arrived in 2003. rnrnJuly 2005 saw the launch of Carty\'s latest CD featuring banjo and tenor guitar, "I Will If I Can". Accompanied by Alec Finn, Brian McGrath and Johnny McDonagh, Carty once again shows his plectrum prowess to full affect. rnrnJohn performs regularly with Chieftain\'s flautist Matt Molloy exploring the North Connaught tradition they both love. He has also toured the UK, US and Ireland with re-formed super group, Patrick Street. The group includes legendary musicians Andy Irvine, Kevin Burke, Jackie Daly and Ged Foley. He has also appeared as a special guest with the Chieftains and De Danaan. rnrnJohn\'s solo and group careers see him in demand and he has performed at all major festivals throughout Europe, North America and Australasia
