About this event

With their exquisitely produced, award-winning recordings, ranging dynamically from the most sensitive and touching old Irish songs to hard-hitting reels and jigs, and their heartwarming, dynamic live performances, Altan have captivated audiences from Donegal to Tokyo to Seattle. Throughout, there has been the unwavering commitment of the band to bringing the beauty of traditional music, particularly that of Donegal fiddlers and singers, to contemporary audiences in a way that shines a unique light on its qualities. In fact, Altan have always believed that Irish traditional music is a modern genre in every sense and its growing influence and popularity have proved them right. 

The seeds of the band lie in the music and fun of gatherings and sessions in kitchens and pubs in Donegal, where virtuoso music was heard in an atmosphere of respect and intimacy. It is here that the band’s heart lies still, whether they are performing on live television in Australia or jamming with Ricky Skaggs on the West Coast of the United States.
