Authentic Music of the Emerald Isle
Six-time Grammy Award-winners, The Chieftains have been credited for reinventing traditional Irish music on an international scale. After fifty years of making some of the most beautiful music in the world, their ability to transcend musical boundaries, blending traditional with modern, has kept The Chieftains’ music as fresh and relevant as when they first began. Equally comfortable playing an Irish session as a concert at Carnegie Hall, they bring a spirited and infectious joy to every performance.

“They seem ageless, and so does their Irish music. If common sense tells you they can’t go on forever, you wouldn’t know it from their electrifying performance.” — Boston Globe
“Over the years, they’ve become something like a musical genealogical society, climbing out onto the branches of Celtic music’s family tree and plucking delicious fruit.” — St. Paul Pioneer Press
