The Chieftains Booking Agency Profile

Book The Chieftains for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Six-time Grammy Award winners, The Chieftains, are widely recognized for bringing traditional Irish music to the world's attention. With a career that spans forty-five years and forty-three albums, The Chieftains are not only Irelands premier musical ambassadors, but also the most enduring and influential creative force in establishing the international appeal of Celtic music. They have uncovered the wealth of traditional Irish music that has accumulated over the centuries, making the music their own with a style that is as exhilarating as it is definitive. Their album San Patricio is a collaboration with fellow Grammy-winner Ry Cooder, and features guest stars Linda Ronstadt, Liam Neeson, Los Tigres del Norte, and many other celebrated Mexican, American and Irish musicians and singers. San Patricio is one of The Chieftains' most unique projects ever - an unprecedented blend of the musical heritage of Ireland and Mexico, San Patricio brings to life the story of the San Patricio Battalion, Irish-Americans who deserted the United States Army to join the Mexican side in the Mexican-American War..

The Chieftains's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of booking The Chieftains for your party.

CTI can give you the The Chieftains booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book The Chieftains for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final The Chieftains booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will The Chieftains charge for an event. Also, thier speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the The Chieftains agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The The Chieftains manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book The Chieftains for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the The Chieftains agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book The Chieftains, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the The Chieftains booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for The Chieftains, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
