THE CHIEFTAINS - RY COODER / FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL DE JAZZ DE MONTRÉAL
Information on the activity
July 2, 2014 | 19 H
The preeminent traditional Irish group, the Chieftains and their leader Paddy Moloney, have carried the musical torch of the Emerald Isle for 50 years. Extraordinary American guitarist Ry Cooder—the man behind the Buena Vista Social Club and the Paris, Texas soundtrack—is a passionate missionary for all forms of cultural fusion. Cooder, who collaborated with the Chieftains on their Grammy award winning record The Long Black Veil and most recently on 2010's San Patricio, an album brilliantly marrying Irish and Mexican folk music, joins Paddy and the band as their very special guest as they remind us what truly traditional music is in their first visit to the Festival!
