Beloved for bringing traditional Irish music to the world’s attention, “virtuosos and historians” (The New York Times) The Chieftains have created their own exhilarating and definitive style. In their more than 50 years together, they have never been afraid to push boundaries. They were the first Western group to perform on the Great Wall of China; were featured at Roger Waters’ The Wall performance in Berlin; and collaborated with some of the biggest names in rock, pop and traditional music around the world. Performing with founder and piper Paddy Moloney, The Chieftains remain as fresh and relevant as when they began.

Yo-Yo Ma – Edgar Meyer – Chris Thile
2016/2017 UCSB Arts & Lectures
Yo-Yo Ma – Edgar Meyer – Chris Thile
In 2011 these virtuosos and friends made history with The Goat Rodeo Sessions, a recording that blurred the lines of bluegrass, jazz and classical music to the delight of sold-out crowds and critics who gleefully praised the one-of-a-kind collaboration. Together once again, they’ll explore an all-Bach program. Yo-Yo Ma’s rendition of the Bach Cello Suites is regarded as a masterwork. Double bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolinist Chris Thile – masters in their own right, each a MacArthur Fellow – join him in arrangements of The Art of the Fugue, keyboard works including The Well-Tempered Clavier and various trio sonatas.
