World Music

February 22, 2001

Celtic music group Altan will perform Saturday in Northridge. After the band performed at the Hollywood Bowl last summer, the Times' Don Heckman wrote: ". . . one of the Celtic world's great treasures, gifted with a front line--fiddlers Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh and Ciaran Tourish and button accordionist Dermot Byrne--that is a sheer powerhouse."

Also, the trio Triangulo, featuring Grammy-winning clarinetist Paquito D'Rivera, cellist Gustavo Tavares and pianist Pablo Zinger, will perform Friday night in Northridge.
