Listen Before the Show: the Chieftains

The Chieftains recently collaborated with some impressive artists for their soon-to-be-released (as in tomorrow) album, Voice of Ages. Kinda curious? You'll hear the musical artistry of Bon Iver, the Civil Wars, the Decemberists, etc. Wow!

Take a listen to the Chieftains collaboration with Bon Iver here.

It's only appropriate that so many wonderful contemporary musicians are joining the Chieftains on the new album; it's the Irish band's 50th anniversary (double wow!).

Recently, Stereogum posted a video of the Chieftains talking about how it felt to record with the younger bands featured on Ages.

Hear more about the band's expansive career of creating memorable Irish music at NPR.

Catch the Chieftains at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, March 7, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the Kauffman website. Find track listings, more information here.
