Coming Soon to Claddagh Records ‘The Chieftains 4’ remastered and released on CD for the first time since 1971.
Claddagh Records are delighted to re-release one of The Chieftains classic albums back onto CD.
Recorded in 1971 over a weekend in London, this was the first of The Chieftains recordings to feature the seminal sounds of Derk Bell’s harp, which ultimately came to be completely synonymous with The Chieftains distinctive sound.
Beautiful acoustic folk played by performers at the top of their game, the execution is moving and subtle, yet often majestic.
‘The Chieftains 4’ is music to lift your spirits and produce some truly wondrous moments.
The version of ‘Mná na hÉireann’, composed by Seán Ó Riada and dedicated to him after his passing, was featured in Stanley Kubrick’s 1975 film Barry Lyndon and was also recorded on Mike Oldfield’s 1996 album Voyager, serving as testament to the level of music produced on ‘The Chieftains 4’."
