The Chieftains 8

'The Chieftains 8' saw the final appearance of Michael Tubridy and Seán Potts with the group, and features a beautiful and striking set piece composed by Paddy Moloney, 'Sea Image', a six minute experimental piece in homage to the stirring power of the sea. 'Melody Maker', Europe's No. 1 music magazine, complimented the group for not resting on their laurels and continuing to experiment and expand, and named them Group of the Year.
