The Alt

The Alt features the combined talents of renowned guitarist and songwriter John Doyle, Irish fiddle master Kevin Burke and singer, guitarist and bouzouki player Eamon OʻLeary. The trio’s performances reflect their love for the traditional music that has been a touchstone of Irish identity for generations and are inspired by the heritage of Irish immigrants who settled in Appalachia, where their songs became building blocks for old-time country and bluegrass music.

As a trio, they make beautiful and compelling music that celebrates and demonstrates their love for old Irish ballads and freshly discovered songs that make up the rich Irish folk tradition. Each of these master musicians use their partnership and talent to touch at something deeper in the music and make it all their own.
