Martin Hayes & Dennis Cahill
Fri, Apr 11, 7:30 - 9:30 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
Irish fiddle virtuoso Martin Hayes and American guitarist Dennis Cahill possess a rare musical kinship. Together they have garnered international renown for taking traditional music to the very edge of the genre, and holding listeners spellbound with their slow-building, fiery performances. The duo opens the doors of traditional Irish music and releases its pure, distilled beauty, while incorporating sensibilities from the worlds of blues and jazz. The New York Times calls them "a Celtic complement to Steve Reich’s quartets or Miles Davis’ Sketches of Spain."
We first heard Hayes and Martin in November 2006, as a part of a special evening of Celtic music with Alasdair Fraser, Natalie Haas and Bruce Molesky. Every moment was brilliant, but hardly enough! We welcome back Ireland's finest for an evening all to themselves.
