Formed in 1962 by Paddy Moloney from the ranks of the top folk musicians in Ireland, The Chieftains are celebrating their 50th anniversary in the music industry. The six-time Grammy winners have been honored in their own country by officially being named Ireland’s Musical Ambassadors. The Chieftains’ music remains as fresh and relevant as it was when they first began. In 2010, they released San Patricio, which reached No. 37 on the Billboard 200, the highest charting of all of their 58 albums.
