The Chieftains at 50

In 1962, musician Paddy Moloney founded a traditional Irish music group called The Chieftains.  Now, this Grammy-winning ensemble (six to date) has produced 40 albums and is responsible for sharing Irish music with the world.  Celebrating their 50th anniversary, The Chieftains recently released Voice of Ages, a collaboration with Bon Iver, The Decemberists, the Punch Brothers and many other contemporary musicians.  This Saturday, The Low Anthem joins The Chieftains on-stage at Carnegie Hall to conclude their 50th anniversary tour and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day as only The Chieftains can.
