    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 Ciarán 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.

  • Irish traditional music : Altan - 3 Highlands In memory of Frankie Kennedy, RIP

    Posted in memory of that great flute-player, and gentleman, Frankie Kennedy, of Altan. Frankie starts with a Donegal Highland version of a tune known in Scotland as The Kilt Is My Delight - the band join in for another 2 Highlands.
    There doesn't seem to be that many videos of Frankie's playing on Youtube, hopefully this will remind people of what a great player he was.

    3:39

    Altan is the most exciting Irish Folk Band. On Island Angel, the Donegal sextet blazes through the instrumental medleys of reels, jigs, strathspeys and mazurkas with a reckless abandon. Not content to merely play the dizzying melodies at demanding tempos, all six musicians seem to lean into the rhythms with an urgency that's thrilling to hear. When the music slows down for a slow Gaelic song by Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh, the contrast with the blistering tunes only heightens the drama of her gorgeous, wistful soprano.

    Another classic from this packed Trad Music show produced by Gaye Byrne. The show was recorded for their 1993 Christmas special. Also shown in Scotland, little wonder that in 1994, having taken so many musical trips over to Ireland (Drogheda, Dundalk, Dublin, Dingle, Tralee, Limerick and Ennis that I finally moved to Galway, living there in the heart of the town next to the river. Playing music in the area for many months was absolutely wonderful and goodness, finally travelling back to Scotland to start a new job in 1995 was one of my most difficult journeys ever - leaving one home to go to another...

  • Altan - Gleanntáin Ghlas Ghaoth Dobhair

    3:25

    The beautiful Irish song sung in Gaelic by Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh of Altan. This song was written by Mairéad's father, Francie Mooney. It's one of the most beautiful and meaningful songs of immigration ever written.

    Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh sings it with great pride and longing, and makes it crystal clear why this is the unofficial anthem of the people of Gweedore.

    ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
    Farewell to the noble mountains of Donegal
    And twice farewell to tall Erigal, arching over rowen and ash tree
    When I passed by Dunlewey Lake, lying quietly in the glen
    Behind me were the green glens of Gaoth Dobhair, and it nearly broke my heart.

    Traveling through Glendowan's Hills, and Muckish behind me
    I don't mind saying with sorrow and grief, that tears fell from my eyes
    Westward to America was my journey, far across the wide sea
    I said farewell for a while to Donegal, and the green glens of Gaoth Dobhair.

    I never wanted to leave my own beloved land
    But the foreigner's heavy handed deceipt and treachery drove me away
    It would be my heart's desire to return again, when I should get a little money
    To spend the end of my life with my family, 'round the green glens of Gaoth Dobhair.

    Yet farewell, farewell to Donegal County fine and fair
    And to your brave men who in time of need, did not ever cower before the foreigner
    There's a place in my heart for each man and woman, each child big and small
    Who live in peace, without sorrow or grief, in the green glens of Gaoth Dobhair.
