Martin Hayes, a native of County Clare, is regarded as one of the most extraordinary artists to emerge in the world of Irish traditional music. Known for his spellbinding performances and mastery of the violin, he is the recipient of major national and international awards including six All-Ireland fiddle championships. He is joined by his longtime accompanist Dennis Cahill, who has developed a unique finger-picking style and is one of the most innovative guitarists in Irish music. Their partnership is ranked among the most memorable in Celtic music today.

"(they) turn Irish tunes into gentle, virtuosic fantasias." New York Times
