Unrivalled in the authenticity of their Irish song and with a keen eye for new creative opportunities, The Chieftains have recently been collaborating with a surprising succession of contemporary artists including Bon Iver, Paolo Nutini and the Low Anthem. They have also learnt a thing or two over the years when it comes to putting on a good show - expect the spirited joy of a ceilidh, good-natured on-stage banter and above all the beautiful and virtuosic sounds of The Chieftains.
