Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Altan is regarded by many as the world’s finest traditional Irish band. Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh sings ballads with seemingly effortless beauty and grace, and her duets with fellow fiddler Ciaran Tourish are the centerpiece of the group’s instrumental sound. Their complementary styles are anchored by one of the best rhythm sections in the business, with Dáithí Sproule on guitar, Dermot Byrne on accordion and Ciarán Curran on bouzouki.
