The spirit and sound of Altan comes from the deep and rich musical tradition of their native County Donegal. On one of his many visits to the Donegal Gaeltacht of Gaoth Dobhair, Belfast born flute player Frankie Kennedy met fiddler and singer Maire´ad Ni´ Mhaonaigh, sparking off a deep musical connection, marriage in 1981, and a journey that took them everywhere. Their vision was to bring the unique repertoire of Donegal music to the world and that mission is still as strong as ever. Though Frankie Kennedy passed away in 1994, his vision, artistry and sense of fun is still at the heart of Altan and his legacy is carried and celebrated in every note.
