Lane Series Presents: St Patrick's Day with Altan

Mar 17, 2018
8:00 pm to 10:00 pm
Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, Mainstage

We love all of our Irish bands, but Altan may be the Gold Standard. Led by the spectacular two-fiddle front line (in the Donegal style) of Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh and Ciaran Tourish, Altan never fails to whip an audience into that happy place that live performance uniquely creates. Sweetened by Mairead?s beautiful voice (the quintessential pure Irish soprano), there is just so much to look forward to in an Altan concert. For 30 years this band has held its place at the head of the pack, and we all know why: from hard driving jigs and reels, to the sweet and sad ballads sung in Gaelic and English, to the mastery of the form and freshness of vision ? it?s an Altan year, and we are so excited!

Price: $48/38/30 adult and $44/34/26 student
