The Rogue Folk Club presents: Altan — direct from Ireland!

With founding member Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh at the helm for nearly 30 years, Altan continues to be one of the most important live acts to play traditional Irish music in Ireland and on the World stage. Altan have toured all over North America and Europe. They also enjoy popularity in Japan where they frequently tour and have hosted Altan festivals in the middle of Tokyo to thousands of enthusiastic fans. From sensitive and touching old Irish songs to stirring jigs and reels, Boston Globe describes them aptly as “The hottest group in the Celtic realm!”
Altan played 7 times at the Rogue between 1989 and 2015, and we are delighted to welcome them back. This celebrated Irish band features Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh (lead vocals, fiddle), Ciarán Tourish (fiddle, tin whistle, backing vocals), Martin Tourish (button accordion, melodeon), Dáithí Sproule (guitar/vocals) and Ciarán Curran (bouzouki, bouzouki guitar).

Advance tickets available at, as well as at Highlife Records & Tapestry Music Vancouver.
