The joy of Altan

As has been my want for over 20 years now, I went to see the wonderful Altan with the redoubtable Mike Perini last night.  Just in time for a new album to emerge, the Poison Glen!  I got in a brief interview about it with lead singer/fiddle player Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh:  (excuse my video quality!)

Mike also got in some nice pictures as well. A great evening, and just the thing I needed!
