Altan is committed to capturing the beauty of Ireland’s traditional music with passion and virtuosic precision. These world-class musicians offer a dynamic range of styles—from heart-warming, sentimental old Irish songs to hard-hitting jigs. Transporting audiences back to rural Donegal in Ireland, Altan’s latest album The Gap of Dreams features traditional Donegal reels which were used to lift the spirits of the town through song and folklore. This chart-topping act was signed to Virgin Records in 1996, becoming the first Irish band of their kind to be signed to a major label. Their live shows are equally acclaimed, filled with playful charm and peppered with wit, Altan wins over its audiences with undeniable talent and charisma.
