The Chieftains - Live! album flac

The Chieftains are a traditional Irish band formed in Dublin in 1963, by Paddy Moloney, Sean Potts and Michael Tubridy. Their sound, which is almost entirely instrumental and largely built around uilleann pipes, has become synonymous with traditional Irish music and they are regarded as having helped popularise Irish music across the world. They have won six Grammys during their career and they were given a Lifetime Achievement Award at the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2002.

The Chieftains are looking forward to returning to the US in 2020 on their Irish Goodbye Tour! Starting in Maryville, TN on February . .Cultural ambassadors, The Chieftains started their journey in Ireland in 1962. Since then they have won six Grammy Awards and are highly recognized for reinventing traditional Irish music on a contemporary and international scale

This live album closed out the Chieftains' stay on Island Records with something of a bang. The group's albums, being all instrumental, were an almost otherworldly listening experience, especially when heard for the first time. This concert recording, derived from performances in Boston and Toronto - no dates are given, but it was the then-current lineup with Derek Bell very much present on harp - features the group in an exuberant mood, and demonstrates their close verbal interaction with their audience. And the results are bracing, whether the group is reaching back to repertory.

The Chieftains are a Grammy winning Irish musical group founded in 1962 (Dublin, Ireland), known for performing and popularizing Irish traditional music. The band has recorded many albums of instrumental Irish folk music, as well as multiple collaborations with popular musicians of many genres, including Country music, Galician traditional music, Cape Breton and Newfoundland music, and rock and roll.

The Chieftains Live! is the first album by The Chieftains which was recorded live. It was recorded on tour in December 1976 at Symphony Hall in Boston and Massey Hall in Toronto. Moloney was quoted as saying, "I don't know what they did to it technically, but I know it plays too fast!". The Morning Dew - 3:32. George Brabazon - 2:56. Carrickfergus - 3:49. Carolan's Concerto - 3:09.
