Other Info
Altan has a 20+ year history, and is one the top bands in Irish music. They have played in larger halls in Tucson, so this show, with guests will be a treat in the Berger Center. Altan has been in Tucson many times, the last time being 9 years ago. From Donegal and other parts of Ireland, Altan plays fiddles (2 of Irelands best in one band), accordion, various strings, whistles and has two vocalists, Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh, also one of two fiddlers, and also guitarist and vocalist Daithi Sproule, who began his career singing with Triona and Michael O'Dhomnaill of the Bothy Band. Both Mairead and Daithi sing in Irish gaelic and in English.
Altan will be joined by one of America's finest Irish fiddlers, Liz Carroll out of Chicago--listen to her on a track by clicking above. Liz has been in Tucson at least twice, 7 years ago with guitarist John Doyle and earlier with Mick Moloney and others. Liz is a very exciting fiddler, and is also one of America's few well-known composers in the Irish style. She is the only American to ever have won an award given in Ireland for best traditional composer of the year--just 4 years ago in 2011.
Altan's new CD, The Widening Gyre, is now released on Compass Records. The CD includes American players mostly on Irish music, including Sam Bush, Tim O'Brien and Mary Chapin Carpenter.
