The Chieftains aren’t just any old Irish folk band. Formed in Dublin in 1963, their wistful instrumentals—built mainly around the harp and uilleann pipes, which are basically Irish armpit bagpipes—have helped Ireland’s traditional music reach a worldwide audience. The Chieftains have won six Grammys, worked on the Academy Award-winning soundtrack to Stanley Kubrick’s 1975 film Barry Lyndon, and have transcended genre by collaborating with a truly staggering number of popular musicians, from Sinéad O’Connor to Elvis Costello to Roger Daltrey to Madonna to Van Morrison (Irish Heartbeat!) to the Rolling Stones to Willie Nelson to Portland’s own Decemberists. The list goes on! Everybody wants to jam with the Chieftains because, as I’ve said before but will say again: The Chieftains are total hotshots.
