“55 years, wow, where have they gone as we’re still going strong,” says Paddy Moloney, leader of the six-time GRAMMY award winners, The Chieftains. The Chieftains have been highly recognized for reinventing traditional Irish music on a contemporary and international scale. The Chieftains were formed in Ireland in 1962 by Paddy Moloney, one of the top traditional folk musicians in Ireland and around the world. Their ability to transcend musical boundaries and to blend tradition with modern music has notably hailed then as one of the most renowned and revered musical groups to this day. After more than 55 years of making some of the most beautiful music in the world, The Chieftains’ music remains as fresh and relevant as when they first began. So now The Chieftains are set to embark on their 55th Anniversary Tour in the US beginning in California on February 17th making their way across the US to east coast with a final show on St. Patrick’s Day weekend at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Sunday, March 19. Paddy Moloney says, “This tour will have all the musical force of what we’ve accumulated and achieved over the last 55 years, with a few extra gems thrown in for good measure.”

Although The Chieftains’ early following was purely a folk audience, the range and variation of their music and accompanying musicians quickly captured a much broader audience, elevating their status to the likeness of fellow Irish band, U2. The Chieftains are never afraid to shock purists and push genre boundaries and the trappings of fame have not altered The Chieftains’ love of, and royalty to, their roots however, they are as comfortable playing spontaneous Irish sessions as they are headlining a concert at Carnegie Hall. Paddy Moloney finishes with, “With this tour of music, song, dance and a few surprises… our guests are the cream of the crop joining in for a great party.” Appearing as special guests for their March 19 performance at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre will be one of the nation’s top regional orchestras, the Jacksonville Symphony, who will accompany The Chieftains during the second half of The Chieftains’ concert performance.

The Jacksonville Symphony, founded in 1949, is a leading cultural establishment in northeast Florida. Since then, the Symphony has performed with a variety of talented musicians, ranging from The Beach Boys and singer Audra McDonald to renowned violinist Joshua Bell. On May 28, 2016, the Symphony performed with Wilson Phillips at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. With every note played and sung, the Symphony strives to perform stimulating music in a variety of different styles and settings to inspire its community. The Jacksonville Symphony’s 2017 season is truly exciting, packed full of inspiring music. Courtney Lewis returns for his second full season as Music Director and has programmed an exceptionally diverse Masterworks program, increasing the number of concerts from 10 to 12. The Symphony has also increased their Pops programming to 12 concerts and their Symphony in 60 to four concerts.
