Santiago is an album by The Chieftains, released through RCA Records in 1996. The album is dedicated to traditional music of Galicia, the region in the northwest of Spain, and also adaptation of Galician emigrants' musical folklore in Latin American music, for example, in the music of Mexico and Cuba. As Paddy Moloney noted in the CD's booklet, Galicia is "the world's most undiscovered Celtic country".

San Patricio is an album by the Irish musical group, The Chieftains featuring Ry Cooder, released in 2010. It was their first album with Hear Music and the first studio album in over six years since Further Down the Old Plank Road (2003). It tells the story of the San Patricio battalion-a group of mainly Irish immigrant volunteer soldiers who deserted the . Army in 1846 to fight on the Mexican side in the Mexican–American War (1846–1848).

The Chieftains are also joined by Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos and Eliot Fisk on this album. Paddy wrote a special piece ‘Galician Overture’ that was originally intended to be 1 minute, but ended up being 7/8 minutes long, and is now a highlight of orchestral preformances. They brought Ry Cooder as a featured guest and a number of these singers and musicians became part of Ry’s Buena Vista Social Club, eg Omara Portuondo, Doc Made

Here the Chieftains have embarked upon an exploration of the "lost Celtic province" of Galicia (the northwest corner of Spain) and areas extending to Portugal, the Basque provinces, and Cuba. They have used the finest musicians from these areas to propel their music with a conviction that staggers the imagination. Attempting to find album highlights is virtually impossible due to the incredible musicianship displayed by the guests, too numerous to mention, who populate this work. Nevertheless, the opening five-part suite "Pilgrimage to Santiago" is worthy of singling out, with its use of ancient traditional instruments such as the tralaparta (large wooden planks that are laid on baskets and maize leaves and played with sticks) and the participation, in a different section of the suite, of the Ulteria Choir.
