About

You might call it the luck of the Irish, but The Chieftains know it takes a workman's discipline and a tradesman's skill to make great music and stage a spectacular show for more than 40 years. And lucky you, this legendary Irish folk band is bringing their Grammy-winning hits and their troupe of musical friends to the NSO Pops just in time for St. Patrick's Day! With a strong Celtic heritage and a pinch of good cheer, The Chieftains are here to paint the town green. Please Note: The NSO does not perform in the first part of the program.
