With a career at the pinnacle of Irish music ALTAN has achieved legendary status in a genre that has been equally shaped by the band's influence and genius. On THE WIDENING GYRE, the band explores the musical relationship between American roots music and the traditional music of Ireland. It's the first full project Altan has recorded in Nashville, and pairs these Irish masters with some of the leading lights of American folk and bluegrass music. The resulting music is completely engaging, simultaneously breaking new ground and reminding listeners of the ancient bond between Irish and Appalachian music.
