The Chieftains tour behind their newest album, San Patricio, has been delighting audiences across the country. The album has received glowing reviews from both critics and fans. The New York Times states, "What happened was not all dolorous lamentation, though there is some of that. The rest is joy, thoroughly Mexican yet utterly Irish, carried aloft by tin whistles, skin drums, pipes, harps, guitars and stomping feet. It’s a mix you’ve never heard, but eerily familiar." And AllMusic.com raves "It’s full of gorgeous songs of heroism, love, tragedy, and loss. San Patricio's songs are sung passionately, without artifice, they're played expertly."

Paddy Moloney and the Chieftains have appeared on numerous radio programs including Public Radio International's Studio 360 (listen here), WNYC's Leonard Lopate (listen here), and PRI's The World (listen here).
