The Chieftains
9 (Boil the Breakfast Early)




Claddagh Records


Irish Traditional


Claddagh Records are delighted to re-release one of the Chieftains most celebrated albums of all-time back onto CD.

Seen as a new beginning of sorts, ‘The Chieftains 9: Boil The Breakfast Early’ was the first of their albums to feature the acapella singing of bodhrán player Kevin Conneff and also the flute playing of Matt Molloy.

This rejuvenation engendered ‘The Chieftains 9’ with a freshness in their sound recognizable not only to long-time fans but for new listeners too.

This willingness to innovate coupled with the confidence of the players is a treat for the listeners as you feast your ears on a variety of melodies that go unmatched. Infectious and bouncy, one to add to the collection.
