The Chieftains is the first album released by the Irish musical group The Chieftains in 1964.

Cailín na Gruaige Doinne" (The Brown-Haired Girl) – 2:40.
The album starts out rousingly enough with the double-time jig "Strike the Gay Harp," and has a handful of memorable tracks, such as "Carolan's Concerto"; "The Trip to Sligo," a haunting piece; and "Sonny's Mazurka," a beautiful piece written by a departed colleague of the band, played with poignant, inspiring intensity.

The album features Pat Kilduff, a professional lilter from Athlone, who had never before ventured outside Westmeath, and The Chieftains delighted in showing him the sights of London in between recording.
