Altan is an award-winning traditional Irish band that has toured all over the world. Join the band as it celebrates its 35th anniversary with a showstopping tour including a night in Kirkland! Musically, Altan offers a dynamic range of songs from the most sensitive, traditional Irish songs to the most modern, hard-hitting tunes – all performed with flair and panache. Altan was originally founded by flute-player Frankie Kennedy and his wife, Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh in 1981. Frankie, who was diagnosed with cancer in 1991, continued to perform until he succumbed to his illness in 1994. Altan was the first Irish band of its kind to be signed by a major label.
