& The Chieftains
Special Guests: CANZONA Vocal Ensemble
With a career that spans over five decades and more than 40 albums, The Chieftains are not only Ireland’s premier musical ambassadors, but also a major force behind the worldwide appeal of Celtic music.
Featuring pipes, whistle, bodhran, fiddle, flute, and vocals — and of course the well-placed stories for which they are famous – the six-time Grammy winners joyfully capture the essence of traditional Irish music, filled with jigs, reels, ballads, and surprises. Their return to the Cohan Center for the first time in 10 years will no doubt be a highlight of the season. Local vocal group CANZONA will also perform with the group.
“After 50 years of making some of the most beautiful music in the world, The Chieftains' music remains as fresh and relevant as when they first began...Their ability to transcend musical boundaries to blend tradition with modern music has notably hailed them as one of the most renowned and revered musical groups to this day.”
– The Town Hall
“If there is a more beautiful music sound in all the world than that made by the Chieftains, I haven’t heard it.”
– Houston Post
