The Chieftains are a Irish celtic band formed in Dublin in November of 1962. The musicians are Paddy Moloney, Sean Potts and Michael Tubridy. The band had its first rehearsals at Moloney's house, with Tubridy, Martin Fay and David Fallon. Their music have helped popularise Irish music across the world.
Paddy Moloney came out of Ceoltóirí Chualann, a group of musicians specialised in instrumentals, and sought to form a new band. The group remained only semi-professional until the 1970s, by then they had achieved great success in Ireland and in the United Kingdom. In 1973, their popularity began to spread to the United States when their previous albums were released there by Island Records. They received further acclaim when they worked on the Academy Award-winning soundtrack to Stanley Kubrick's 1975 film Barry Lyndon, which triggered their transition to the mainstream in the US. The group continued to release successful records throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and their work with Van Morrison in 1988 resulted in the critically acclaimed album Irish Heartbeat.They have collaborated with the Rolling Stones, Madonna, Sinéad O'Connor and Roger Daltrey, among others.The band has won six Grammys during their career and they were given a Lifetime Achievement Award at the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2002. Some music experts have credited The Chieftains with bringing traditional Irish music to a worldwide audience, so much so that the Irish government awarded them the honorary title of 'Ireland's Musical Ambassadors' in 1989. In 2012, they celebrated their 50th anniversary with the release of their most recent record, titled Voice of Ages.
This radio station plays music from them throughout all their career, along with the music from other Irish celtic groups.
