The Chieftains are the heart and soul of traditional Irish music. They have collaborated with the giants of the entertainment world and won countless Grammy Awards. But the essence of The Chieftains can be found in the first tiny wail of Paddy Moloney’s tin whistle or the gentle lilt of Kevin Conneff’s classic Irish tenor voice, or those priceless—and frequent—moments when, in perfect sync, the band peels off a reel at breakneck speed. The Chieftains just being themselves is one of life’s great pleasures.
