The world’s greatest Celtic band. The Chieftains, are recognized for bringing traditional Irish music to the world's attention. They have uncovered the wealth of traditional Irish music that has accumulated over the centuries, making the music their own with a style that is as exhilarating as it is definitive. This has led the Chieftains to being officially named Ireland’s Musical Ambassadors, as they have become the standard bearers of the Irish folk music tradition. The winners of six GRAMMY awards, The Chieftains have been nominated for a total of eighteen, and have also won an Emmy and a Genie award. In 1975, The Chieftains recorded the soundtrack to Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon, featuring the hit single “Women Of Ireland,” for which they won an Academy Award.
