Effusively congenial, endlessly adaptable…They still pump out the medleys of reels and jigs with robust, unabashed vigor.

Variety

World Stage
The Chieftains
The Irish Goodbye

The sweetest sounds this side of County Cork! Far and away “the world’s best-loved Irish folk band, both for their superb musicianship and their sense of adventure” (The Guardian, London), the Chieftains cap 57 years of music making with a tour for the ages. Beloved by fans for bringing the elegant simplicity and fiery virtuosity of Irish folk music into a dizzying array of musical contexts—including collaborations with Ry Cooder, Mick Jagger, Bon Iver, and traditional musicians from Mexico—the six-time Grammy winners are equally at home in a grand concert hall or an after-hours pub jam session. Don’t miss a chance to say goodbye to these folk music legends!
