Album Review

Unbeknownst to some, a healthy Celtic music scene developed in Canada during the '80s and '90s and the Chieftains wisely chose to spotlight the region with Fire in the Kitchen. Every track was recorded with a different artist and, like the group's previous collaborations, the album brings out the best in both the Chieftains and their guests. To casual Celtic fans, Ashley MacIsaac may be the only familiar name here, but Natalie MacMaster, the Great Big Sea, Laura Smith, the Barra MacNeils, Rita MacNeil, La Bottine Souriante, Mary Jane Lamond, the Rankins, Leahy and the Ennis Sisters all give equally compelling performances, helping make Fire in the Kitchen yet another splendid entry in the Chieftains' canon.

Customer Reviews

One of my favourite albums ... ever!

The high water mark of Canada's East Coast Celtic/folk rennaissance. So much of the scene collapsed in the year or so that followed this release after the local record labels that fostered these artists either went under or were bought by multinationals and shut down that I was surprised to see this in iTunes library. This is a masterful collaboration between some of Canada's then-biggest artists and the legendary masters of Celtic music, the Chieftans. The instrumentals are real floor stompers and along with the Barra MacNeils and Great Big Sea are the stongest cuts on the album. Even Laura Smith's rather monotone "My Bonnie" can't bring me to give this any less than five stars.

Still one of the best!

I got this when I graduated from high school and it STILL gets my blood pumping!

The original traditional Irish folk band, as far as anyone who came of age in the 1970s or '80s is concerned, is the Chieftains. Their sound, built largely on Paddy Moloney's pipes, is otherworldly, almost entirely instrumental, and seems as though it comes out of another age of man's history. That they...
