Paddy MoloneyThe Chieftainsand Special GuestReturning to The Grand after 25 years and as six time Grammy winners, The Chieftains are recognized for bringing traditional Irish music to the world’s attention. They have uncovered the wealth of traditional Irish tunes that has accumulated over the centuries, making the music their own with a style that is as exhilarating as it is definitive. The group was formed in 1962 by composer and leader Paddy Moloney with crossover appeal to the pop audience. “Celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, the lads are touring behind their new “Voice of Ages” album; they seem ageless, and so does their Irish music. And if common sense tells you they can’t go on forever, you wouldn’t know it from their electrifying performance.” -Boston Globe
