The Chieftains Tickets
Way back in 1964, an Irish author wrote his book of stories Death of a Chieftain which became a source of inspiration for Paddy Moloney, the founding member of the Irish folk and Celtic music band The Chieftains. Not just the title but the bands music itself was a compelling force for the audience. Garech Browne assisted in the beginning and the band signed themselves with Claddagh Records and achieved financial success. Founded in 1962, this great Grammy award winning Irish Musical group became famous in a pithy time and had gained fame all over the globe for their outclass production of traditional Irish music.
