One of the greats of Irish music.
The Chieftains are a great group, but seeing them live is the best way to see them.
I won’t claim to have known the names of the band members, but I do love the Chieftains.
From 35 years ago on the BBC, 30 minutes of their music.
Ah, that’s one that hurts. I’ve seen the Chieftans a few times over the years, they always put on an excellent show.
Noooooooooooooo! The Chieftains’ “Irish Goodbye” was one of the last performances I saw before quarantine. Feb 28, 2020. I’ve seen them several times. Always a great show. Aw, man…
I mentioned his passing in the Death Pool thread and posted a video in the bagpipe thread (l really like O Sullivan’s March)
