For the Chieftains' Leader, There Is No Irish Translation for "Slowing Down"

It has often been said that music is an international language.

Regardless of political and physical boundaries, status, race and creed, the melodies and harmonies that are conceived from inspiration, nurtured into notes and finally released into the air to be shared with the world, can transcended all these barriers.

And, if there is one musical group that has most embodied this ability, and proven to be masters of it, over the past half-century-plus, it is the legendary Irish band, The Chieftains, and they are not slowing down.
