Altan "The widening gyre"

Altan \"The widening gyre\"

After nearly 35 years together - the longest running lineup of founding members in Irish Music - the band was ready to flex their musical boundaries. Altan fused the traditional Irish music that they are known for, namely Donegal fiddling and Gaelic singing traditions, with American roots music, particularly that of the Appalachian bluegrass fiddle. The band recorded in Nashville to collaborate with long time friends and guests such as Mary Chapin Carpenter, Eddi Reader, Alison Brown, Sam Bush, and many more.
