The Chieftains

The Chieftains is a traditional Irish band formed in Dublin in November 1962, by Paddy Moloney, Sean Potts and Michael Tubridy. The band had their first rehearsals at Moloney's house, with Tubridy, Martin Fay and David Fallon. Their sound, which is almost entirely instrumental and largely built around uilleann pipes, has become synonymous with traditional Irish music and they are regarded as having helped popularise Irish music across the world. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Near Bethlehem did shepherds keep
Their flocks of lambs and feeding sheep; 
To whom God's angels did appear, 
Which put the shepherds in great fear.
"Arise and go", the angles said.
'To Bethlehem, be not afraid, 
For there you'll find this happy morn, 
A princely babe, sweet Jesus born.
There were three wise men from afar
Directed by a glorious star, 
And on they wandered night and day
Until they came where Jesus lay, 
And when they came unto that place
Where our beloved Messiah was, 
They humbly laid at his feet, 
Their gifts of gold and incense sweet.
