  • There are few groups so closely and unalterably associated with their home country as the Chieftains. These carriers of the traditional Irish folk torch had spent 40 years as Ireland's musical ambassadors by the time of this commemorative collection. On the one hand, they're unquestionably fine at laying down Irish tunes in the grand old style with bodhran and pipes blazing away (as on such tradition-minded fare as "Mo Ghile Mear" and the medley involving "King of Laois" and "Paddy's Jig." On the other, they've always been open to collaboration with artists from every corner of the music world, whether it's a former new wave hellion like Elvis Costello searching for his roots on "Long Journey Home" or countryman Van Morrison sounding entirely at home joining the lads for the evocative folk song "Shenandoah." As THE WIDE WORLD OVER makes abundantly clear, a large part of the Chieftains gift is in knowing how to mix the old and the new without compromise on either side of the equation.
