2019 marks 57 years since The Chieftains began their illustrious journey. As cultural ambassadors, their performances have been linked with seminal historic events, such as being the first Western musicians to perform on the Great Wall of China, participating in Roger Water’s “The Wall” performance in Berlin in 1990, and being the first ensemble to perform a concert in the Capitol Building in Washington DC. In Ireland, they have been involved in many major occasions, including Pope John Paul II’s visit in 1979 when they performed to an audience of over 1.3 million, and the historic visit to Ireland of HRH Queen Elizabeth II in 2011. In 2010, their experimental collaborations extended out of this world, when Paddy Moloney’s whistle and Matt Molloy’s flute travelled with NASA Astronaut Cady Coleman to the international space station. More recently in Japan, The Chieftains were awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award as part of the 2017 Ireland Japan Business Awards. And in 2018, Paddy was awarded the prestigious Encomienda de la Orden del Mérito Civil by the Ambassador of Spain.

Although their 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.

After 57 years of making some of the most beautiful music in the world, The Chieftains remain as fresh and relevant as when they first began.

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
