Six time Grammy winners, The Chieftains, are now recognised for bringing traditional Irish music to the world's attention. They have uncovered the wealth of traditional Irish music that has accumulated over the centuries, making the music their own with a style that is as exhilarating as it is definitive.

The Chieftains were formed in 1962 by Paddy Moloney, from the ranks of the top ... Read more in Amazon's The Chieftains Store

5.0 out of 5 stars An Honest to God Brilliant Night 20 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
I've seen the Chieftains live, once. I got straight back home, and listened to this album, because it really does seem to encapsulate the whole experience of a Chieftains live performance. It really is like this album plays it.
There's the medleys, the guest spots, the Irish dancing, the whole lot. It's well worth a listen to if you're ever planning to go to a Chieftains performance, and it's probably well worth getting if you want to recapture the atmosphere of a performance if you've been to one before. About the only thing that could be better, aside from the real thing, of course, would be a DVD of it, watched on a big screen, with surround sound.
I love this album, it's one of my favourites. I swear, I've nearly worn the shiny off the CD by listening to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Next best thing to "live" 1 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
Although I have never been lucky enough to see The Chieftains "live", this album must be the next best thing. It is another incredible masterpiece from one of the best bands ever to come out of Ireland + their talented guests. I own many of their albums, but this one must rate as my favourite. I was intrigued to find out how Roger Daltry could front a group of musicians like The Chieftains with such diverse backgrounds in music. I was not disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Afoot Tapping CD. 28 Feb 2012
By trish
Format:Audio CD
Bought this cd as a present for my husband for his birthday alongside other things. By all accounts he was enjoying the sound as i thought he was about to jump out of his chair whilst wearing his headphones to start dancing, a sign of an authentic sounding cd i feel.!

4.0 out of 5 stars True artists 21 Nov 2012
By Yummie1
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Love the music these laid back, talented Irish men play. It's a take it or leave it attitude from the group. They love what they do and have stood the test of time
