"More than any Irish group, this Donegal quintet is seen as keeper of the traditional flame." – The Boston Globe
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 Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh and Ciaran Tourish, Altan never fails to whip an audience into that happy place that live performance uniquely creates. Sweetened by Mairéad’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!
