With Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh (vocals, fiddle), Ciaran Tourish (fiddle, tin whistle, vocals), Dermot Byrne (accordion), Ciaran Curran (bouzouki) and Mark Kelly (guitar)
Over the past twenty years, with a dozen albums and hundreds of concerts to their credit, Altan has been unrivalled. The group plays an energetic traditional music, carried along by the beautiful voice of Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh and the talented musicians who play with her. Altan weaves together a repertoire of melancholy ballads, jigs and reels from Donegal, a still-wild county at the north-western tip of Ireland. Acclaimed from Tokyo to Seattle, Altan comes to Paris – to the magnificent courtyard of the CCI – to mark the 30th anniversary of Fête de la Musique.
