THE CHIEFTAINS and special guests
Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015 (8 pm)
“Celebrating their 50th anniversary...[The Chieftains] seem ageless, and so does their Irish music. And if common sense tells you they can’t go on forever, you wouldn’t know it from their electrifying performance.” - Boston Globe
Six time Grammy winners, The Chieftains are recognized for bringing traditional Irish music to the world's attention. They have unearthed a wealth of centuries-old music from their homeland, making it their own with a style that is as exhilarating as it is definitive.
The Chieftains were formed in 1962 by Paddy Moloney, from the ranks of the top folk musicians in Ireland. Although their early following was purely a folk audience, the range and variety of their music quickly captured a much broader public, making them the best known Irish band in the world today.
Never afraid to shock purists and push boundaries in their 50 years together, The Chieftains have amassed a dizzyingly varied resume. Their most recent album,Voice of Ages, featured collaborations with a wide range of today's top musicians, including Bon Iver, The Decemberists, Pistol Annies, Punch Brothers and Carolina Chocolate Drops, reinterpreting traditional songs and proving that The Chieftains are as relevant today as they have ever been.
