Altan in Concert
September 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The World Music Festival and the IAHC present world-renowned traditional Irish ensemble Altan for a free all-ages concert on Thursday, September 13 at 7pm, as part of the World Music Festival Chicago 2018.
Few groups have been as instrumental in the spread of traditional Irish music worldwide. As Ireland’s foremost traditional folk act, the group have toured internationally, sold over a million records and have acted as flag-bearers for Irish tradition, introducing many audiences to this style of music for the first time.
With their exquisitely produced award-winning recordings and heartwarming, dynamic live performances, Altan have moved audiences from Donegal to Tokyo. 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.
Altan is Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Martin Tourish, Ciarán Curran and Dáithí Sproule.
