    Watch: The Low Anthem and The Chieftains Perform "School Days Over" on Letterman

    The Low Anthem joined The Chieftains in a performance of "School Days Over" on The Late Show with David Letterman Tuesday night, in celebration of the legendary Irish band's 50th anniversary. "The perfect way to celebrate their anniversary," says VH1, "the performance was filled with soul and reverence, and if you close your eyes, will take you back to a rolling, misty, fantastical landscape filled with magic." Watch the performance below.

    The Late Show performance is one of a number of events this week in which The Low Anthem and the Chieftains can be heard performing together. On Friday at 6 PM ET, head over to npr.org/music, where NPR Music will stream a concert by the two groups recorded at NPR member station WGBH. And on Saturday, March 17, The Chieftains will celebrate St. Patrick's Day in concert at Carnegie Hall, featuring a special guest appearance by The Low Anthem.

    Before then, The Low Anthem will play a special set of its own at the South by Southwest (SXSW) music conference and festival in Austin, Texas. The band will play an official SXSW concert at ACL Live at the Moody Theater tonight at 7 PM, followed by Alejandro Escovedo and The Sensitive Boys and another band to be announced soon.
