Episode Summary

Hail to the Chieftains!
After fifteen years together as "The Chieftains" (Sean Potts, Sean Keane, Michael Tubridy, Peadar Mercier, Martin Fay, Derek Bell, Paddy Moloney) are largely responsible for the revival of the Irish folk music tradition. Tune in for a concert performed by a group of traditional Irish musicians, who use pipes, tin whistles, harp, bones, concertina and fiddles while performing melodies that are ancient, yet innovative. Their music is carefree, moving, noble and, at times, eerie. Accompanying the players as background are films of the old Irish landscape, and one song, "The Battle of Aughrim," is illustrated with pictures of the battle (fought in 1691 between forces of William III and James II) and was commissioned especially for this show.moreless
