The Chieftains have long been acclaimed for reinventing traditional Irish music – and after 57 years of making some of the world’s most beautiful music, these multiple GRAMMY Award winners remain as fresh and relevant as when they first began.
This year marks the 57th anniversary of the birth of The Chieftains. Since 1962, these master musicians have earned six GRAMMY Awards and have been recognized around the globe for their ability to transcend musical boundaries, to blend tradition with modern music. One of the world’s most revered musical groups to this day, The Chieftains are as comfortable playing spontaneous Irish sessions as they are headlining a concert at Carnegie Hall.
To celebrate their 50th anniversary, The Chieftains invited friends from all musical styles to collaborate on their Voice of Ages album. Featuring some of modern music’s biggest artists (Bon Iver, The Decemberists, Paolo Nutini and more), Voice of Ages proved that The Chieftains’ music transcends not only stylistic and traditional boundaries but generational ones as well.
NICO Kitchen + Bar will be open for this performance.
