The Chieftains

with Paddy Moloney and special guests

After leading Irish folk supergroup The Chieftains for nearly six decades, from the early years of toiling in obscurity to the triumph of six Grammys and international fame, Paddy Moloney could retire any time he wants. Now 80, he has tried. Or dreamed of trying, anyway. But he still enjoys playing, the music still energizes him, and there’s still high demand for what he and his bandmates do. So he soldiers on. And fans everywhere appreciate the effort. Read more at CSO Sounds & Stories
