Event description

Description

The iconic Irish band Altan has achieved legendary status in a genre that has been equally shaped by the band’s influence and genius. Audiences from Ireland to Japan to Australia to Europe have embraced their heartwarming, dynamic live performances which run from touching old Irish songs to hard-hitting reels and jigs. The band has been going strong for 35 years and is as relevant as ever: their newest release, “The Gap Of Dreams,” came out this year on FreshGrass partner Compass Records, and fiddler, singer, and founding member Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh was the recipient of the Gradam Ceoil/Traditional Musician of the Year in 2017, one of the highest honors in Irish music.

Billboard (US):

“Altan's tireless touring has won them a loyal following especially in America, and helped them make impressive inroads on world music charts”

The Boston Globe:

“The hottest group in the Celtic realm these days”
