After fifty-seven years of making some of the most beautiful music in the world, The Chieftains are as fresh and relevant as when they first began. The six-time Grammy Award winners are highly recognized for reinventing traditional Irish music on a contemporary and International scale. Their ability to transcend musical boundaries to blend tradition with modern music Them hailed as one of the most renowned and revered musical groups to this day.

As cultural ambassadors, their performances have been linked with seminal historic events. The Chieftains were the first Western musicians to perform on the Great Wall of China, participating in Roger Waters The Wall performance in Berlin in 1990. Also, they were the first ensemble to perform a concert in the Capitol Building in Washington DC. In 2010, their experimental collaborations extended to out of this world, when Paddy Moloneys whistle and Matt Molloys flute travelled with NASA astronaut, Cady Coleman, to the international space station.
