Chieftains 2 is the second album released by the Irish musical group The Chieftains in 1969, the first being Chieftains 1 in 1963.
When Seán Ó Riada
disbanded Ceoltoiri Chualann
in 1969, several of the players wanted to continue the sound they had pioneered. The result was the reformation of "The Chieftains". "The Foxhunt" had previously been known as a piper's tune, but here it was given a full band treatment, and was widely played, as a direct result of this recording.
