Legendary Irish supergroup Altan who are described as "the hottest group in the Celtic realm" by The Boston Globe come to Dingwall Town Hall for a seated concert on Saturday, April 16.

Altan are one of the longest-established and foremost traditional Irish band to come out of the country.

This was recognised on November 7, 2006, when the Irish Government through An Post (The Irish Postal Body),honoured Altan by issuing a postal stamp featuring the band.

This award showed Altan’s immense impact on recent Irish culture at home and abroad and the growing popularity of Irish traditional music generally at that time.

With their award-winning recordings, their ground breaking Island Angel recording going to number two in the Billboard World Music Charts in 1993, ranging dynamically from the most sensitive and touching ancient ballads all the way to the energetic foot-tapping reels and jigs and their heart-warming engaging live performances, Altan have moved audiences from Donegal all the way to Tokyo, to Sydney, Seattle and beyond.

Altan’s music is steeped in the rich and colourful heritage of County Donegal in the North West of Ireland.

Tickets are available now from June’s Card Shop and The Hair Studio (both on Dingwall High Street) and online from

The show is a co-promotional event between Dingwall Events and Scottish Folk Promotions.
