Tá Altan ar an fhód le níos mó na tríocha bliain agus ní beag an tionchar a bhí acu ar éisteoirí agus ar shaol an cheoil anseo in Éirinn agus thar lear. Ó Ghaoth Dobhair i nGaeltacht Thír Chonaill tá áthas orainn an sárbhanna ar leith seo a thabhairt chuig An Droichead don chéad uair.
With their exquisitely produced award-winning recordings, ranging dynamically from the most sensitive and touching old Irish songs all the way to hard hitting reels and jigs, and with their heartwarming, dynamic live performances, Altan have moved audiences from Donegal to Tokyo to Seattle. 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 in a way that brings out all its qualities
and destroys none. In fact, Altan have always believed that Irish traditional music is a modern music in every sense and its growing influence and popularity have proved them right.
