The Chieftains
Tuesday, March 1st, 2016 at 7:30pm

Six-time Grammy Award winners The Chieftains have been highly recognized for reinventing traditional Irish music on a contemporary and International scale. Their ability to transcend musical boundaries to blend tradition with modern music has notably hailed them as one of Ireland’s most renowned and revered musical groups to this day.  The Chieftains' music remains as fresh and relevant as when they first began.  2012 marked the group’s 50th anniversary, and to celebrate that momentous occasion, The Chieftains once again invited friends from all musical styles to collaborate on their latest album, Voice of Ages. Featuring some of modern music’s fastest rising artists (Bon Iver, The Decemberists and Paolo Nutini among them), this album is proof that their music transcends not only stylistic and traditional boundaries, but generational as well.
