Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Manus Lunny and Nia Ní Bheirn at Cork Folk Festival

It has been a strange time.

Altan were supposed to play last Friday September 25th in Áislann Chill Chartha but because the Covid 19 numbers were going up and Dublin and Donegal having the highest incidence of cases we and the committee decided to postpone this concert until it is safer to have it.

Next weekend my daughter Nia and I along with our friend Manus Lunny are playing the Cork Folk Festival on Saturday October 3rd. I’m really looking forward to be able to play live again.

(update: you can now watch the entire concert below!)


Tá am aisteach ann.

Bhí Altan le bheith ag seinm in Áislann Chill Chartha Dé hAoine seo a chuaigh thart, ach b’éigean dúinn an ceolchoirm a chuir ar ceal cionas go raibh uimhreacha an méid daoine le Covid 19 ag meadú agus go mbeadh sé dainseárach dul ar aghaidh leis.

Ach le cuidiú Dé beidh mé féin agus mo níon Nia ag triall ar Chorcaigh lenár gcara Manus Lunny an deireadh seachtaine seo chugainn. Tá muid le bheith ag seinm ar an Satharn 3ú lá de Dheireadh Fómhair i dTeach an Opera.

(uasdatú: is féidir breathnú ar an coirm iomlán thíos!)

    My nine-year-old daughter and I are taking your fiddle lessons together and it is just delightful to see you and your daughter perform! We will be working on Queen of May all year, I think 🙂 Sending our best to you for 2021.
