Edinburgh's Usher Hall will welcome Irish folk legends The Chieftains on June 17th.

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - May 14th, 2012 - The Chieftains, one of Ireland's most popular traditional music acts, are due to play at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh next month.

Fans of the group can see them perform in the Scottish capital on Sunday June 17th, when they are set to play songs from latest album Voice of Ages.

Formed in Dublin during the early 1960s, The Chieftains are celebrating 50 years in the music business this year. They are now regarded as international ambassadors of traditional Irish folk music, having performed in huge venues around the world.

Their distinctive sound is largely based around the pipes of founder Paddy Moloney, whose virtuoso musicianship has driven the band since its inception.

Voice of Ages, which was released in April, features collaborations with contemporary American artists such as the Low Anthem, Bon Iver and The Decemberists.

Tickets to see The Chieftains in Edinburgh can be purchased online, priced at £37.50 and £35 plus booking fee. The show is due to begin at 20:00 BST.
