About

In 1984 The Chieftains toured China. Chinese audiences reacted to their first encounter with Irish music immediately and spontaneously. They loved it. The Chieftains were feted everywhere they went and had many sessions with local musicians. Obvious disparities between Irish and Chinese music did not prevent a search for common ground, and The Chieftains themselves play several Chinese pieces, while a Chinese ensemble joins in on some of the Irish tunes.
