The Chieftains "The Irish Goodbye"

Tickets on sale Friday, June 4, 10am.

Cultural ambassadors, The Chieftains started their journey in Ireland in 1962. Since then they have won six Grammy Awards and are 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 hailed them as one of the most renowned and revered musical groups to this day.

They can claim some unique and sometimes ‘firsts’ as they were the first Western musicians to perform on the Great Wall of China, participate in Roger Water’s “The Wall’ performance in Berlin in 1990 and were the first ensemble to perform a concert in the Capitol Building in Washington, DC. In 2010, their experimental collaborations extended to out of this world, when Paddy Moloney’s whistle and Matt Molloy’s flute traveled with NASA astronaut, Cady Coleman, to the international space station.

As cultural ambassadors, The Chieftains’ performances have been linked with seminal historic events, such as being the first Western musicians to perform on the Great Wall of China, participating in Roger Water’s “The Wall” performance in Berlin in 1990 and being the first ensemble to perform a concert in the Capitol Building in Washington, DC. In 2010, their experimental collaborations extended to out of this world, when Moloney’s whistle and Matt Molloy’s flute traveled with NASA astronaut Cady Coleman to the international space station.

Although their early following was purely a folk audience, the range and variation of their music and accompanying musicians quickly captured a much broader audience, elevating their status to the likeness of fellow Irish band, U2.

Never afraid to shock purists and push genre boundaries, The Chieftains, however, remain loyal to their roots. They are as comfortable playing spontaneous Irish sessions as they are headlining a concert at Carnegie Hall.
