BOSTON — Following an evening of music by The Chieftains and The Low Anthem, guests and performers gathered to celebrate 50 years of great traditional Irish music and the new collaborations on The Chieftains latest album Voice of Ages.
While on a world tour celebrating 50 years as one of the most celebrated traditional Irish bands in history, The Chieftains stopped by WGBH's Fraser Studio to share some tunes and meet with fans and members of the WGBH Celtic Club.
Great local beer for the event came from Watch City Brewery in Waltham, who provided an E.S.B and an Irish Red Ale, while the Guinness came from The Burren in Somerville.
You haven't missed your chance to hear live Irish music — both new and traditional —in Boston this week. Tickets are still available for A St. Patrick's Day Celtic Sojourn, appearing at the Zeiterion Theater in New Bedford and at the Sanders Theaters in Cambridge. Performers include Susan McKeown, The Bee Eaters, Jeremy Kittel, Michael Brunnock and many more.
