With a career in Irish music spanning 35 years, Altan has maintained an unwavering commitment to the beauty of Irish music, particularly the traditions of the fiddlers and singers of their hometown in County Donegal. It was in Donegal that the sincere and exhilarating spontaneity of sessions in kitchens and pubs was heard in an atmosphere of respect and intimacy. And it is here that the band’s heart still lies as they remain fresh in their vision of bringing the joy of traditional Irish music to audiences everywhere, from the most touching old Irish songs to hard-hitting reels and jigs.
