For more than 40 years, the Chieftains have taken traditional Irish music (jigs, reels, drinking/sailing songs and, of course, tales of the potato famine) around the world and still found time to collaborate with such artists as Sting, the Stones, Ziggy Marley and Willie Nelson. Their current stage show includes a tribute to late member Derek Bell, also the focus of their most recent live CD. 8 p.m. at the Grand 1894 Opera House, 2020 Postoffice Street, Galveston. For tickets, call 800-821-1894 or visit www.thegrand.com. $58 to $77.
