Altan

The super Irish band Altan celebrates their 30th anniversary in 2017. The band are very proud of what they have achieved so far in their career: first Irish traditional band to be signed to a major label, a postage stamp in their honour bestowed by the Irish Government, recordings with some of their heroes including Dolly Parton, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Ricky Skaggs, and performances in some of their favourite venues in the world: Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House and Grand Ole Opry.

The band wants to give UK audiences a chance to select the set list from songs and tunes over their 30-year career that will be performed at Lakeside. The band will be posting a choice of songs and tunes on their website (www.altan.ie) early in 2017 and fans will be given the option to choose their favourites to be heard on the night.
