    Saw you last night in Albuquerque New Mexico and it was a wonderful heartfelt evening on St Patrick’s Day. The music was played and sung with exquisite love of the music. I also have the love of the Irish and their music and it brought me to tears more then once!??

    What a wonderful concert in Pittsburgh last night! I’m very happy to have your new book _Altan, The Tunes_ complete with five fresh autographs. I’m trying to tell friends about it, but I see no link to the book on your website! Perhaps I’m missing it?

  3. Frisco on 16 January, 2017 at 5:31 pm

    My friends from Antwerp, Belgium took me to hear you in Zaandam, Netherland and I just want to say I have never been this impressed by a band before. Never heard such beauty before and please never stop because you are truly AMAZING!

    I had the pleasure of seeing you play last March, in Portland, Oregon, for the first time in many years. It was like seeing old friends again. Truly. I first saw you perform in Seattle in about 1994. One of the things I came away with, besides a great musical experience, is how much you seemed to enjoy playing with each other and for your audience. That was undiminished, all those years later in Portland. That same joy in the music, and in performing, and it really communicates to the audience. Daithi, thank you for “A Heart Made of Glass.” It is a gem of an album. I bought a copy for my sister for Christmas. She attended the show with me in March, and enjoyed your songs. “I love your voice,” she said to you after the show. Now she’ll hear it in her home.

    Our best to you all at Christmas. I hope we have an opportunity to see you play sometime in Northeast Ohio, where we’ve retired.

    We had such a great time at your show tonight in Beacon! You guys light up the room with your fun and enormous musical talent. How lucky were we to be in the audience tonight. Please come back to Beacon again!

  6. Ken Frewin. on 6 August, 2016 at 10:22 pm

    I went to your performance at the Broadstairs Folk Week on Friday 5th August with my wife, daughter and son-in-law, we thoroughly enjoyed it and had a great time.

    Best regards Ken Frewin.

  7. Carmel Keenan on 27 June, 2016 at 1:52 pm

    Enjoyed your performance at Blas in UL last night. Brilliant as always.

  8. Davie Munro, Alma and John SNP member for 62 years. on 14 April, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    We just had to post a comment after meeting you all and listening to your wonderful music at Findhorn last night. We enjoyed a really fantastic and uplifting night, and it was just so uplifting. I will post the photo of John with you on Facebook soonest….I am listening to the band as I type this. ‘HASTE YE BACK’ ALTAN AND MAY GOOD FORTUNE FOLLOW YOU ‘TILL WE MEET AGAIN.

    Davie, Alma and John. ( John is still dancing).

  9. Ken Fahey on 23 March, 2016 at 10:22 am

    We so enjoyed your concert in Asheville and again at Eddie’s Attic. After enjoying your music and coming to your concerts for nearly 20 years, I am so excited that we have planned to come to Ireland for your tour!

  10. L Pallatto on 21 March, 2016 at 4:23 pm

    Last night in Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage enjoyed every song and story and all the Irish banter. You are generous and fun and we had the best time! Thank you so much!

  11. John McBain on 13 March, 2016 at 5:26 am

    Hello from Vancouver BC! I saw you last year at the Centennial Theatre and you are my favourite Irish group. My nephew is being relocated to Belfast in May as a pilot for Sunwing
    and they will be living in Templepatrick for about five months so I was planning a trip to
    visit them when it would be convenient and wondered if you have any concerts there, Through your emails about Donegal I am excited to be going to the area and travel around
    your beautiful country.
    Slainte!
    John

  12. Jack Archer on 6 March, 2016 at 10:19 pm

    I’ve been a fan of your music for a long time, and had the privilege of seeing you play in Seattle and Olympia, Washington. Great memories not only of the wonderful shows but of how nice the players were to audience members (including me) afterwards. We’ve missed you in Olympia for a while. Maybe my wife and I can get to Portland to see you later this month. We’ll start making plans. The new record sounds great. So many musicians on it we’ve enjoyed so much over the years.

    Our best to each of you.

  13. Howard W. Morris on 4 March, 2016 at 4:23 pm

    What a joy to hear you folks on a grey March evening at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis. I loved the music from your new album and your new accordionist is grand. (The rest of you are grand too.) I could have listened to the band until the strings on your instruments broke down. (Perhaps around 4 in the morning.) Please come back, I miss you already.

  14. Fiona Williams on 26 February, 2016 at 5:43 am

    Really enjoyed your performance this evening. Was at your show in Letterkenny July 2015 while home on holidays. Thrilled to see you in our new home …So Proud of your achievements worldwide. I try in the US to really encourage my new friends and people with (dubious) Irish heritage to travel to Ireland but you make that job so much easier..except most people I meet here go on the southern tour of Ballybunion, Lahinch, Doonbeg , Ring of Kerry, Killarney, Blarney Castle…..well thankfully you are going to show them there is more to Ireland than that…..
    Am thrilled with your Wild Altan Way. Hope it is a great success

  15. Nick Semple on 31 January, 2016 at 3:50 pm

    Fabulous Celtic Connections last Friday – and wonderful guests including Edie Reader. Hope you’re around soon again.

  16. Cèlia and Eulàlia on 27 October, 2015 at 11:07 am

    We’re from Barcelona and came to see you at Return to Camden Town Festival.
    It was a magic night of great music.
    And thank you to Mairéad to spent some minutes talking with us.
    It was a real delight.

  17. Randall Nash on 18 October, 2015 at 4:22 am

    I have been a huge Altan fan since Harvest Storm. Any chances of ever performing in Texas?

  18. Bill Bergan on 10 October, 2015 at 2:43 am

    Have you any plans to return to the Sellersville Theater in Pennsylvania anytime soon. I’ve seen you there twice already and would like to see you again.

  19. Deborah Simpson on 21 September, 2015 at 10:50 am

    It was a joy to be at your concert on Saturday at Rye Arts Festival – we never wanted it to end. Hearing the music come to life on stage was great, and we loved the joking around between the band (Ciaran Tourish is a hoot, with his deadpan (Rye?!) sense of humour!).

    It was also lovely to be able to speak to Mairéad afterwards and she was as warm and friendly then as on stage. We came from Southampton, quite a distance, and were so glad we did. Thank you – and please come back to the South of England again.

  20. Francie on 15 September, 2015 at 8:06 pm

    Many years ago, I was at a concert at UC Santa Barbara, CA and you took the stage. Listening I was amazed at how it bought me back to many evenings at my grandparents apartment in Jersey City. They were both from Donegal (Gweedore), but met in New York City. I have been a fan ever since! My husband and I had “going to Sligo” on our bucket list for many years; so when I saw that you were playing at this year’s festival. I booked the flight. So looking forward to seeing you perform live again…any in my ancestral backyard.

  21. Diana Maynard on 9 September, 2015 at 7:05 pm

    Love your music. Hope you come to the US soon!

  22. William Conroy on 31 August, 2015 at 11:50 pm

    I listen to your music often. I am inspired by it. Thank you for all that you all do!

  23. chris on 5 August, 2015 at 7:08 pm

    Lovely to see you at Sidmouth again. Great show!

  24. Bernd Binnefeld on 13 July, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    Hallo mairead
    Das ist eine ganz iolle cd die ihr gemacht habt. Vielen dank

  25. TERRY STEWART on 22 June, 2015 at 2:51 pm

    I just want to say that I Love all your music! I am so happy you are making a new album. I plan to buy it as soon as I can.

  26. Laura McLachlan on 23 May, 2015 at 12:11 am

    Thoroughly enjoyed your gig at the Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh tonight. You are certainly back with a bang! Stonking tunes, beautiful songs and hilarious banter! So sad though to see that the hall wasn’t very full. Hope this doesn’t put you off coming back to Scotland. Yours aye

  27. Mikel on 20 May, 2015 at 10:28 am

    Hi,

    beautyful concert in schwetzigen yesterday, looking forward to see you on your tour and promise to bring our son, the neighbours and friends the next time.

    Cheers Mikel

  28. Kirsty on 9 May, 2015 at 11:57 pm

    Hey just to say thank you all for a wonderful performance tonight at Buxton Opera house :)
    Was the first time i have seen you guys perform and your music brought shiver down my spine and euphoric emotion that actually brought tears to my eyes :)
    I admire you all, you are so very talented <3
    Sending you lots of best wishes and all the best for the future – you truly deserve it :) Hope to see you all again soon…

  29. Elizabeth on 3 April, 2015 at 7:49 pm

    Last night at Swallow Hill in Denver, Colorado, listening and watching Altan was a miracle happening for me! Absolutely grand!!!

  30. Mary McDonough on 19 March, 2015 at 6:40 am

    My Husband Dan & I just returned from your St. Albert, Alberta Concert tonight. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and the cancelled night before, (due to a water main break) gave us an excuse to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day two nights in a row! This past November we lost my 89 year old Mother, Nancy Collins, born outside Tulla, County Clare. She immigrated with my Father and two of my siblings to Edmonton, Alberta in 1956. I just wanted to express how Martin’s song “The Road Home” made my Heart ache and brought me instantly to tears. I can’t remember ever hearing such a Beautiful song, and I felt her Spirit taking “The Road Home”.

  31. Michael Bentley on 16 March, 2015 at 4:00 am

    I can see why Altan are are excited and energised by The Widening Gyre. Thanks to the band (and all their guests) for an exceptional album of music and song.

  32. aimee satterfield on 9 March, 2015 at 6:14 pm

    Just brought our three daughters,maeve,una and mary to hear your show in Gettysburg yesterday…It was wonderful! They loved it! Next time,we’ll hopefully hear you play in Culdaff @ McGrory’s!!!

  33. Mac & Moe (Maureen) Smith on 3 March, 2015 at 2:53 am

    I would encourage the purchase of the album “The Widening Gyre” and attending their current concert tour (2015) for the release of this album. Both are wonderful. My entire family enjoyed the concert and the music is still ringing in our heads after seeing them in both Boothbay Harbor, ME and Somerville, MA. If we could, we’d travel to the west coast and see them again during this tour!

  34. P F on 2 March, 2015 at 2:53 pm

    Altan, a chairde – Bhí mé ag an gceolchoirm ag City Winery aréir, agus thaitin sé go mór liom. D’ardaigh sé mo chroí. Bhain mé sult as “There Is No Ash Will Burn” agus an t-amhrán grá breá faoin sliabh i nDún na nGall. Ádh mór oraibh leis an turas i Meiriceá. Le meas, Paul

  35. Tony Carlotto on 28 February, 2015 at 2:41 am

    Just got Widening Gyre from Compass. One of the best albums I have purchased in a long time. Every track is fabulous!! Hard to find such good total packages anymore. Thank you!!!!!

  36. Ben Tiffany on 19 February, 2015 at 6:28 am

    From the Ballyshannon Folk Festival in Donegal in 1988, to Dublin a few years later,and on to my home state of Colorado,Altan has long been my favorite Irish traditional band. Once I saw Mairead play her fiddle,I was hooked for life. We are honored to have you back in Colorado once again this spring,and I am absolutely thrilled that you brought Tim O’Brien,Alison Brown,Darol Anger and most especially Sam Bush to your latest album. To have such a combination of players making music together is beyond my wildest dreams.Thank you so much for the joy that you bring. Will see you soon!

  37. Grainne McCool on 6 February, 2015 at 11:48 pm

    I’ve grown up with the music of Altan. Well, maybe I’ve matured with the music of Altan!! It was a real honour to recently speak with Mairead for a feature I wrote for Irish Music Magazine. Their new album The Widening Gyre is simply enthralling. And I’m very inspired by the fact that the album title is taken from a Yeats’ poem, ‘The Second Coming’ and also features ‘White BIrds’ (an early poem by Yeats)….just so very fitting in this the 150th anniversary of the greatest poet Ireland has ever known. An amazing Irish trad band and how fitting that they are from the land of Donegal…God’s very own country. I look forward to meeting these folk one day soon and engaging in some serious banter with them. Just listen to this new album….it’s just fab!

  38. Aideen Doherty on 4 February, 2015 at 1:54 pm

    How lucky are we in Donegal to be blessed with ALTAN and their ability to represent us on a world stage – http://www.donegaldiaspora.ie/people/mair%C3%A9ad-n%C3%AD-mhaonaigh

  39. Dave Prine on 3 February, 2015 at 9:49 pm

    Welcome back! Love the new site. Looking forward to the new CD (yay PledgeMusic!) and hoping to you see at a California show!

  40. Steve Spradlin on 3 February, 2015 at 6:59 pm

    My Favorite group!!

  41. Marie Cahalane on 3 February, 2015 at 6:55 pm

    We are looking forward to seeing you again in Somerville, MA on the 28th. Always a wonderful show! And as my husband’s Irish born former boss would say, “Altan…they’re the real deal”…when it comes to the most awesone Irish trad! Our 2 year old grandson is a huge fan as well.

  42. Tony Sandate on 3 February, 2015 at 4:40 pm

    Your artistry brings so much pleasure! Thanks for keeping the bar high. And thanks for the wonderful photos you post on Facebook-again, part of your sharing of quality art. I hope to see you perform next time you’re in or near the Los Angeles area. Of course, I would love to visit Ireland, too! Bendiciones!

  43. Matthew Donaldson on 3 February, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    I enjoy your music and am glad you came to Pittsburgh a few years back. Your music got me interested in traditional Irish music. I would love to see you in Gettysburg, Pa, in March. Wishing you the best!

  44. Antonio Herrera on 3 February, 2015 at 4:12 pm

    I love your music. I think you are the best group out there. I look forward to more albums and keep them coming.

  45. Deborah Kinney-Soltis on 3 February, 2015 at 3:55 pm

    I love you guys! I have a 6 disc CD player in my car, and almost every slot is Altan. (Martin Hayes occupies one.) Thank you for so many hours of your wonderful music. Hoping to see you live!

  46. Liam O'Connor on 31 January, 2015 at 8:24 pm

    The first Altan CD I bought was The Red Crow, and it is still a favorite. My wife, Trish, and I saw you at Denver’s Botanic Gardens in a lovely outdoor concert. I’ve fallen behind in purchasing your CD’s, I need to order your new one and the one previous.
    I am sooo happy that you have included some of the Newgrange folks, especially Tim, Darol and Alison. I play their Christmas album all year long. I cannot wait to hear how Darol’s fiddle playing blends with Ciaran’s and Maighread’s
    I cannot wait to see you all again, you have been companions of mine for many years.

  47. Kimberly Mitchell on 25 January, 2015 at 10:19 am

    Love your music! Driving 3 hours one way to see you in Boothbay harbor Maine in February, but please come back to the Grand in Ellsworth Maine! :) Maine LOVES you!!!!

  48. Arthu Washburn on 20 January, 2015 at 10:26 pm

    I’ve enjoyed your music for 2 decades+. Please come back to Ellsworth, Maine and play at the Grand. If your guys come WE will fill the theater.

    Thanks for youtube, thanks for being at all.

    Ich freue mich auf die neue CD die ihr aufnehmt .Viel Glück und Spass bei den Aufnahmen

  51. Ronnie & Barbara on 7 September, 2014 at 10:26 pm

    Just home from a wonderfully exhilarating, happy and professional performance at Bishops Cleeve Tithe Barn Cheltenham.
    Thank you Altan

  52. pol & bern duffy on 28 July, 2014 at 12:03 am

    Last night’s show at Sellersville was terrific. It was an extraordinarily well knit, highly motivated performance and among our most favourite Altan shows (we have a partiality, and will always have one, for a little show in Berwyn back in the day). Martin Tourish is a welcome addition to the band. He brought an energy and playfulness that helped take things to such a brilliant level. You are going to have to break down and pay him after all.
    Apart from all that, honestly, it did our hearts good to see you all again. You seem happy and energized by the prospect of the work ahead for the new record. It seems like you are entering a new phase, step, direction, and Bern and I wish you the very best. Mairead, you looked beautiful, and your voice…. I remember well the first time I came to see you up in North Jersey and I was stunned. Martha had said you were something other and you still are. What happens when you and Ciaran lean into a tune is unmatched by any other two in any other discipline. Ciaran Curran anchors the rhythm as surredly as he always has. It looked last night that he was really rpoud of where you all were and where you were all headed. And we love Daithi. He is poet, foil, brilliant harmonist for all the wonderful angles and spins you generate.
    May our roads cross often. You have and will always have a special hold on our hearts, dear island angel. You and your brothers in arms are the best f*cking band in the world. Miles Davis and King Crimson are almost in your league. Look after yourselves. Love, pol and bernie.

  53. Sallyann mcneil on 27 July, 2014 at 10:13 pm

    Wonderful show at Sellersville last night, Amazing music and as always we were so happy to be in the audience, please keep coming back!!
    Thank you so much

    Be safe and happy always….

  54. Will Conroy on 8 June, 2014 at 8:04 pm

    I purchased your “The Best of Altan” CD from Amazon.com. I absolutely love it! I am an American who appreciates what you all are doing! All the best! Will Conroy

  55. Valeria on 1 June, 2014 at 5:28 pm

    Thanks for another splendid (and oh-so-irish-wet) gig in Bergamo. You rocks!

  56. Shawna Keizor on 19 March, 2014 at 5:54 am

    This cowgirl from Oklahoma loves your music! I like to listen to it on my phone when I ride my horse! LIVE IT!!!

  57. Fran McKechnie on 11 March, 2014 at 9:56 am

    I was lucky enough to see you all at your first show at Port Fairy Folk Festival. It was love at first song I had to come back to hear your second show. And for the delicious icing on a wonderful cake I met you all and had my photo taken. A huge Thankyou! xxx

  58. mark on 5 March, 2014 at 10:21 pm

    Melbourne March 6 – Lovely show last night – Thank You!
    Don’t know why we werent’t all up dancing – the seats were terrible!
    Have a great time for the rest of your Aus tour.
    And come back soon – every 15 years ain’t enough!

  59. Alonso on 4 February, 2014 at 6:49 pm

    Incredible moments, sharing in the concert in Barakaldo (Spain) last Saturday. Thanks you very much for your songs, your spirit and for the Irish weather… ;-)

  60. Luisja on 1 February, 2014 at 10:15 pm

    Hi, I have been listening to your performance this evening in Barakaldo, Basque Country (Spain). It was simply great! Some of the songs really touched me deeply. However, many of us would have appreciate a single reference to the fact that in the Basque Country we also have an endangered language that deserves to be preserved. Anyway, listening to you has been a real privilege

  61. Judy Clarke on 15 January, 2014 at 6:11 am

    Can’t wait to see you in Port Fairy, the Irish centre of Victoria, Australia. Bon voyage!

  62. pol agus bern o dubhthaigh on 2 January, 2014 at 3:34 am

    What a terrific show at the Concert celebrating the Frankie Kennedy Winter School. So mny wonderful memories and the performances of all were breath taking. Wishing you great success and a happy and healthy New Year. Your friends in Pennsylvania,
    Pol & Bernie

  63. Margaret Rowland on 24 November, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    We enjoyed a fantastic concert in the Kulturkellar in Fulda Nov 14th – great atmosphere, really memorable, thank you! We were over from Wales, UK, visiting friends and seeing you at the same time. Best wishes for a really successful continuing tour!

  64. K. J. on 23 November, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    Thank you for a very wonderful evening (2013/11/22)
    You presented a realy harmonic and emotional show.
    Rarely have I heard such a wonderful voice as that of Mairéad.
    But all of you have given perfect performance.
    It’s been a long time that I felt so relaxed and excited in one.
    I don’t want to lose many words.
    Just, once more, THANK YOU and keep it up!
    May God bless you!

  65. Antje on 20 November, 2013 at 8:45 am

    Hi, you guys gave me a fantastic night (19-11). I was the one dancing like mad :-) Say hello to Donegal (have been living there for more than 3 years) when you get back.
    Thank you soooooooo much!

  66. Jochen on 19 November, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    A few weeks ago our little son (2 3/4 years) came into the room. I happened to listen to the CD “another sky”. He was curiously looking towards the loudspeakers. I said: “isn’t that a beautiful song”? We listened to a few tracks and had a look at the booklet. The next day he demanded (and still does every now and again) “beautiful song listen want” and “singer see want”. The song? Green Grow the Rushes.
    I’m looking forward to see your concert next week in Augsburg!

  67. gotto brinkmann on 18 November, 2013 at 10:45 am

    Hello Mairead, hello Altan, thank you so much for the lovely concert in St. Michael church in Werdohl. 500 visitors were absolutely enthusiastic. They
    realy enjoyed the music. It was awesome and we all are looking forward to see you again in our town.
    With best wishes
    Gotti und Mariela

  68. kenneth Walicki on 7 November, 2013 at 4:51 pm

  69. lilach gretz on 18 October, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    when will be the day you will come to preform in Israel? looking forward…………………..

  70. Pete G on 22 September, 2013 at 11:24 am

    Just came back from 10 days motorhoming in Donegal especially Ghaoth Dobhair and surrounding area.
    Now I know where your beautiful music comes from – such a mystical and beautiful place of which the likes I have never seen before. Can’t stop listening to your music now ! Thanks.

  71. Dennis Murphy on 23 May, 2013 at 3:31 am

    Love the fantastic music the band has produced, but I’m restricted to CD’s, DVD’s and You Tube to enjoy your performances. Would love to see you in Australia some time. If not, I suppose I’ll have to save my pennies for a trip to the old country to enjoy a live performance. Meantime keep up the fabulous work.

  72. Susan on 9 May, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    I didnt realize you were in New York City until after you already played there and posted something about it on Facebook. When do you plan on returning? Would really love to see you.

  73. Kevin Smith on 1 April, 2013 at 5:58 am

    Thanks to the band for the wonderful show on March 17 here in Phoenix, Arizona! Your new album is just fantastic. All the best to you….

  74. bill moore on 27 March, 2013 at 12:26 am

    Hello Y’all: Didnt know you traversed through our state (North Carolina)- Just learned you were in Ashville last week, and alas,, ya didnt make it down Raleigh way. Our loss. Hope to see sooner or later . Best !

  75. Carl Schumann on 26 March, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    My Family and I really enjoyed your performance at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago in March 2013.

  76. Eileen Carroll on 25 March, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    Thank you all for another sizzling performance at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago. You keep the standard of Irish trad music fresh, relevant and invigorating!

  77. Greg Gamble on 25 March, 2013 at 2:54 am

    I saw you for the first time last night in Rochester, MN. What a wonderful performance! You are great ambassadors of your homeland and its music. Hope to see you again.

  78. Teresa Sheppard on 22 March, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    Go raibh maith agat, Mariead!! Your lovely singing has inspired me to study Irish Gaelic. It is such a beautiful language, it must not die!

  79. Kent Van Cleave on 22 March, 2013 at 3:19 am

    Sure was wonderful seeing and hearing you last night in Nashville. I have wanted to see you for at least 25 years. It was wonderful chatting with you, as well. God speed!

  80. Veta Gumber on 16 March, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    My husband and I met Dermot Byrne in Kinvarra at Conneleys Pub last spring. We have been follwing him and also Altan ever since. Congratulations to Dermot on his award.
    I wish U-stream would cover the awards in Limerick.

  81. Dennis Davis on 10 March, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    My wife Deb and I just spent a wonderful evening at The Egg in Albany listening to your fantastic music .You are all virtuosos on your instruments and Mairead, you sing like an angel.
    Thank you so much for autographing your new ” The Poison Glen ” CD’s for me and for my friend Dierdre. The CD will make a lovely birthday gift for her as she was unable to be there at the Egg.
    You inspire all of us musicians to work hard, get better and ” be in the music ” . And congatulations to Dermot on his award !!
    Please come back to our area soon !
    Go raibh maith agat agus Slan leat.
    Dennis

    Dia duit. I’ve been listening to your CD’s for over 20 years now and finally got to see you in person Friday night at Carnegie Hall in New York City. What a fabulous show! Your lovely personalities and humor were a joy to behold and the music was phenominal…My only regret was that the concert had to end…I could have listened to you all night. Thank you for a fantastic and memorable evening. I look forward to seeing you again. Have a safe and wonderful tour!
    Go raibh mait agat, Mary

    Dear Altan musicians!

    Was a super concert at Dieselstrasse in Esslingen, Germany! Thanks a lot for the music, the moody atmosphere, and the encores.

    And Mairead for your wonderful, sometimes angellike singing.

    Will be a pleasure to meet you again.

    Greetings from Nürnberg, Otfried

  93. Ines and Henning Siebel on 18 November, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    Dear Altan,
    thanks for the fantastic concert in Kreuztal, Germany! We’re listening to “the Poison Glen” and already indulge in reminiscences. Hopefully your next Germany tour (whenever that will be) will bring you back here again!

    Love and greetings from the two dancers in the 1s row,
    Ines and Henning

  94. Thomas on 18 November, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Hi folks!
    We came all the way from Cologne to Kreuztal to see and hear you. Great show thanks a lot! Every mile we spent was not wasted. We missed the gig in Ardara two years ago :-(. Kreuztal was the right compensation. Hope to see you again. — Kind regards, Thomas

  95. Jarmo on 4 November, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    O my god – Seven years of waiting wasn’t wasted. I am listening right now your new album and it is bringing so much light to the early November dusk in here! Congratulations – this is one of your best records ever! Hope you’ll be back to Finland one day.

  96. Rafa on 4 November, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    Last night in Cáceres (Spain) was wonderful. It really was a great pleasure been in your concert. Thanks a lot. I hope to see you soon again.

    A fantastic night at the Waterside Sale. My husband and I are new comers to Altan. We have fallen in love with the music and to hear it at a live performance was just amazing.
