First time in paperback: The story of the Oscar- and Grammy-winning musicians whose rediscovery and reinvention of traditional Irish music carried them to worldwide stardom.. The history of the Chieftains over the last thirty-five years is the remarkable tale of how an unlikely group of enthusiasts came together to rescue some of the worlds most beautiful music from near-extinction, brought it to an audience of millions, and became stars.
