Description

Altan have achieved legendary status in Irish Traditional Music and are without question the biggest band touring today in the genre. We are delighted to welcome them to Castleisland for the Patrick O'Keeffe Traditional Music Festival. http://patrickokeeffefestival.com/

"THE HOTTEST BAND IN THE CELTIC REALM” – The Boston Globe

No Irish traditional band in the last 20 years has had a wider impact on audiences and music lovers throughout the world than Altan. The spirit and sound of Altan comes from the deep and rich musical tradition of their native Co.Donegal. Altan's international status and success found a very practical recognition when they were signed in 1996 to Virgin Records, the first Irish band of their kind to be signed by a major label. Throughout, there has been the unwavering commitment of the band to bringing the beauty of traditional music, particularly that of the Donegal fiddlers and singers, to contemporary audiences in a way that brings out all its qualities and destroys none. The band gained gold and platinum albums in Ireland and toured larger venues, literally throughout the world, with tours in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Europe as well as regular successful U.S. tours. The Band's latest album 'Gap of Dreams' was released in 2018 to huge acclaim.

Bill Whelan composer of Riverfance

‘Altan's music has always been true to the roots from which it has
grown, always injecting something new as they approach a set of tunes,
or something beautiful when Mairead's voice floats over slow air or a
love song. This new album combines all of the freshness that is
characteristic of this great band, together with a rare depth and
purity that can only come from the souls of superb musicians.’
