Mick Moloney

A native of Limerick, Ireland, Moloney was an important figure on the Dublin folk-song revival of the 1960s. In 1973, he moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the U.S. where he gained fame as a member of Irish groups The Emmet Folk Group and The Johnstons.

Since then he has performed and recorded with a variety of groups and individuals, including Eugene O’Donnell and Séamus Egan, Marie and Martin Reilly, the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem. In all, he has recorded more than 40 albums of traditional music.

Over his career, Moloney also has taught ethnomusicology, folklore and Irish studies courses at the University of Pennsylvania, Georgetown and Villanova universities, and currently teaches Irish Studies at New York University.

In 1999, he was awarded the National Heritage Award, the NEA’s highest official honour for a traditional artist in the U.S. He also received the Presidential Distinguished Service Award from the president of Ireland in 2013.

Be sure to book your table early, as Scruffy Murphy’s Irish Pub will be packed for this one-time concert series in Bangkok.
