“Still the world’s best-loved Irish folk band, both for their superb musicianship and their sense of adventure!” The Guardian (U.K.)

Beloved for bringing traditional Irish music to the world’s attention, “virtuosos and historians” (The New York Times) The Chieftains have created their own exhilarating and definitive style. In their more than 50 years together, they have never been afraid to push boundaries. They were the first Western group to perform on the Great Wall of China; were featured at Roger Waters’ The Wall performance in Berlin; and collaborated with some of the biggest names in rock, pop and traditional music around the world. Performing with founder and piper Paddy Moloney, The Chieftains remain as fresh and relevant as when they began.
