The Chieftains
The Chieftains Collection Vol.1




Claddagh Records


Irish Traditional

Year of production:



The best-known traditional Irish band in the world began their recording career with Claddagh Records. In this selection from the original group (which included Seán Potts, Michael Tubridy and Peadar Mercier) we hear the band at their refreshing best, playing with just as much confidence as they display nowadays. There are jigs, reels, slow airs and polkas in the sparkling, beautiful arrangements that have always marked The Chieftains' music.
