这张专辑是爱尔兰本土乐队阿尔坦成立二十余年后出品的，邀请了Stephen Cooney、Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill和Carlos Núñez等多位嘉宾参与。阿尔坦乐队缓慢而稳健的实现他们的承诺，为大众递交了一张张前卫的吉格舞曲，民谣，里尔舞曲和女高音，但当这个音乐流派充斥了大量风格相似的音乐表现手法时，阿尔坦渐露风霜，用键盘和没上音柱的贝司取代乐队并不落伍的标志性声乐。阿尔坦已经重新发现将他们从原住地鼓舞前进的灵魂。这是他们的第十张专辑，离开Green Linnet后在Narada公司发行的第三张专辑。主唱和小提琴手Mairéad Mhaonaigh的声音优美胜过了以往任何时候，尤其在“As I Roved Out”和“The Wind and Rain”等出色的民谣里。别的精粹有炽热的Tommy Peoples/The Road to Cashel/The Repeal of the Union/Richies Reel——鼓舞人心的关于年轻人恋情的古老故事。Mairéad的父亲还为这首歌添了一笔歌词“éirigh s Cuir Ort Do Chuid éadaigh (起床，更衣)。”另外还有精彩的具有阿尔坦一贯风格的“Dún Do Shúil (合上你的眼)。”

Local Ground is Altan's 10th studio album in the 20 years since they first came together as a band. Their musical friendships have been forged and proven in innumerable kitchen and pub sessions in Ireland and subsequently on folk club and concert hall stages throughout the world. They retain the energy and enthusiasm that originally shaped and propelled their music even after twenty years together. Their dynamic live shows continue to convey a pride and respect for a tradition the band love. This respect for their own roots is reflected in the title and content of their new album - Local Ground.
It is appropriate that the words "Local" and "Ground" are joined in the album title. Altan have always celebrated and valued the local in their music. Traditional music can be said to be of and from a place. This focus on the celebration of place is important to Altan. The band are always aware of their geographical and musical roots in Donegal way up in the north-west of Ireland. Donegal is strong in culture, music and language. It is a place of great beauty, and the rugged landscape is reflected both in the character of the people and in the music that those people make.
There is an unbroken and venerable tradition of fiddle-playing in Donegal. The music is played in homes, pubs and occasionally, more formally, on concert stages. This music essentially performs a social function: it entertains and enriches the local community. It is used for listening and for dancing. It can provide a backdrop for people to meet and talk. It is valued as being not just a rich form of personal human expression but also as acting as a form of social glue - it helps bring people together. It performs another important function in helping to strengthen local identity. The names of tunes can often carry the name of the person who played them (like Con McGinley's Highland) locally or can commemorate a significant local event or place (The March of the Meenatoitean Bull, The Humours of Castlefin).
