At some point tomorrow while you’re enjoying your St. Patrick’s Day festivities, we highly suggest giving a listen to something other than obligatory U2 and Van Morrison that will be emanating from just about any bar, restaurant or coffee shop that you walk into. While nothing against those two acts, we’d like to point you in the direction of the legendary Irish folk act The Chieftains, who are celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2012. Earlier this year the band released their latest studio effort Voice Of Ages, an excellent collection that saw The Chieftains collaborate with an all-star roster of modern roots, folk and Americana musicians – which included the likes of The Decemberists, Bon Iver, Lisa Hannigan and The Punch Brothers.

On Wednesday night The Low Anthem, who also appear on the album, joined The Chieftains at the Ed Sullivan Theater for their appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman, where they performed the traditional Irish folk tune School Days Over. Let’s check it out…
