Celtic and Medievales Impressions:PLANXTY BUNTING was especially composed by Paddy Moloney for the Cheftains and the Belfast Harp Orchestra to celebrate the Bunting anniversary. The term "planxty"; as used by Carolan (Turlough O'Carolan, 1670-1738, the last of the great itinerant harper-composers), is thought to be based on Latin and its exact meaning has mystified the scholars, some of whom think it to be a form of salute. THE CHEFTAINS: Martin Fay, Sean Keane ( Fiddle ) Kevin Conneff ( Bodhran ) Matt Molloy ( flute ) Paddy Moloney ( uilleann pipes, tin whistle) Derek Bell ( harp, tiompan, harpsichord ) and the Belfast Harp Orchestra with Janet Harbison ( leader )
