Altan is an Irish folk group formed in County Donegal in 1987. It can be argued that no Irish traditional band has had as great an impact on audiences throughout the world in the past generation as Altan. Continuing to bring the beauty and joy of traditional Irish music to its fans, an Altan show ranges from the most sensitive and touching old Irish song, all the way to hard hitting reels and jigs delivered in a heartwarming and dynamic way. The skill of the individual is exceeded by the band that has played over 25 years together through triumph and adversity and now presents that seasoned camaraderie in a very special series of shows.
