The six-time Grammy winning group is recognized as Ireland's Musical Ambassadors, bringing traditional Irish music to the world's attention for more than 40 years. The Chieftains have broken many musical boundaries by collaborating and performing with some of the biggest names in rock, pop and traditional music in Ireland and around the globe. The trappings of fame have not altered The Chieftains' love of, and loyalty to, their roots - they are as comfortable playing spontaneous Irish sessions as they are headlining a concert at Carnegie Hall. The Chieftains' music remains as fresh and relevant today as when they first began.

In their four decades together, The Chieftains have been involved in many historic events, including a tour of China (they were the first Western group to perform on the Great Wall). They also were the first group to give a concert in the Capitol Building of Washington DC, and more recently, band member Paddy Maloney performed a memorial service in October in New York for the victims of September 11, 2001.
