The Chieftains (2010 Season)

Mon, Feb 22, 2010 @ 8:00 PM, The Granada OLD

Special Guest Artist Ry Cooder

“[The Chieftains] have become something like a musical genealogical society, climbing out onto the branches of Celtic music’s family tree and plucking delicious fruit.” Pioneer Press

Ireland’s “inadvertent prophets of the world-music boom” (Rolling Stone) and six-time Grammy Award-winners The Chieftains are recognized for bringing the rollicking, ebullient energy of traditional Irish music to the world’s attention. Never afraid to shock purists and push boundaries, they make music that has accumulated over centuries their own with a style that is as exhilarating as it is definitive so that it remains as fresh and relevant as when it first began. Join the Musical Ambassadors of Ireland for an exhilarating, foot-stomping evening of Celtic music.
