Muze PNote Additional personnel: The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Emmylou Harris, Sin?ad O'Connor, Sting, The Corrs, The Rankins, Van Morrison, Elvis Costello.
Muze PNote The two-CD set THE ESSENTIAL CHIEFTAINS provides a longview of the traditional Irish folk ensemble's vast discography. The discs cover two separate facets of the band. Disc one, entitled "The Chieftains' Roots," spans from the 1970s through the 2000s and includes the band's versions of traditional songs like "O'Sullivan's March" and "The Donegal Set."
Muze PNote Disc two, entitled "The Chieftains and Friends," focuses on collaborations between the band and the likes of Van Morrison, Emmylou Harris, Sting, Marianne Faithful, and others. Throughout, the ensemble's classic sound of pipes, fiddle, tin whistle, and bodhran rings with authenticity and authority, while the superior musicianship that has earned them honors as one of the best Celtic music outfits on the planet is in ample evidence.
