The Chieftains
The Chieftains 1




Claddagh Records


Irish Traditional


In more than twenty-five years playing, The Chieftains have brought Irish music to the farthest parts of the world. Their first record, the catalyst that inspired a completely new generation of traditional musicians, is a good introduction to their later work. Made in 1964, the record remains fresh and exuberant, and is still a bestseller.
