Though associations with pop musicians such as Jackson Browne, Van Morrison, and many others have established The Chieftains as one of the premier traditional ensembles in Ireland, it's their dedication to exploring the depths of the Celtic culture that best proves their musical worth and skill. The focus in CELTIC WEDDING is on Breton wedding traditions. Highlights of this 1986 release include "Dans Mod Koh A Vaod", an old fashioned dance that was known only in the small town of Baud, France, and which has not been performed since around 1950. The pivotal 20-minute title track is a medley of processional and recessional marches, hymns, and various celebratory dances. A thorough and well-researched album, CELTIC WEDDING is as insightful as it is enjoyable.
