With traditional instruments abounding, Celtic folk band the Chieftains are joined by some of the most distinctive vocalists in rock music for a tour of the Irish soul. Drenched in fiddles, Uileann pipes, harp, bodhran, and flute, THE LONG BLACK VEIL is a rousing triumph in this band's illustrious 30-year career.
Sting's vocals are showcased on "Mo Ghile Mear", a Scottish ayre and keening call to arms. "The Long Black Veil", a Lefty Frizzell song popularised by the Band, features Mick Jagger displaying an inherent American hills folk influence. "The Foggy Dew" and "He Moved Through the Fair", two Sinead O'Connor-led traditional tunes, glow with her vibrant voice. A powerful Tom Jones joins his Celtic brothers on the "Tennessee Waltz/Tennessee Mazurka" medley, posing comparisons between American and Irish folk music. Straight out of a smoky pub, the sensational, fog-and-gravel-voiced Marianne Faithfull contributes a sage "Love Is Teasin'". Rounding out the mostly traditional set is Ry Cooder, Mark Knopfler, and the soulful Van Morrison who reprises his "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?"
The Chieftains are revered by many, and some of their more famous fans have paid them a splendid musical tribute with THE LONG BLACK VEIL.
