One of the Chieftans' most ambitious projects ever, San Patricio tells the nearly forgotten story of the brave San Patricio battalion, a downtrodden group of
Irish immigrants who deserted the U.S. Army to fight on the Mexican side in the Mexican-American War (1846-48). Their story is largely untold.
A special collaboration with Ry Cooder and the Chieftans, this album rekindles their Grammy®-Winning partnership, illuminating musical and historical bonds between Ireland and Mexico.
The album features an incredible line up of guest artists, including Linda Ronstadt, Los Tigres del Norte, Lila Downs, Los Folkloristas, Liam Neeson, and others. From the Label
