With founding member Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh at the helm for over 35 years, Altan continues to be one of the most important live acts to play traditional Irish music in Ireland and on the World stage. Altan have toured all over North America and Europe. They also enjoy popularity in Japan where they frequently tour and have hosted Altan festivals in the middle of Tokyo to thousands of enthusiastic fans.

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. The band released gold and platinum albums in that period.

In spite of a hectic touring and recording schedule, Altan continue fresh in their vision of bringing the beauty and joy of traditional music to audiences everywhere, and have always promised themselves to continue as long as it’s fun – fortunately, it still is!

Altan shows no signs of slowing down. In recent years, this Donegal band has been exploring and experimenting with their music using orchestral arrangements of their most popular pieces. In fact, Altan celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a symphonic best-of album release and tour of Europe with the RTE Concert Orchestra in 2010.
