leader of The Chieftains, discusses the group’s new album “San Patricio,”
which was made with Ry Cooder and comes out March 9. It explores the story of the San Patricio battalion, a group of Irish-American conscripts who deserted the American side in the Mexican-American War to fight for Mexico, and it combines elements of traditional Irish and Mexican music to create something altogether original.
