Irish fiddle virtuoso Martin Hayes and Irish American guitarist Dennis Cahill possess a rare musical kinship, and have created one of the most memorable musical partnerships of our era. Their adventurous, soulful interpretations of traditional tunes are recognized the world over for their exquisite musicality and irresistible rhythm. In concert, they hold listeners spellbound with their slow-building, fiery performances, releasing the pure, distilled beauty and vast emotional depths of Irish music. They have toured the world as a duo for the past twenty years with performances in venues ranging from vast to intimate, including the Sydney Opera House, Buddhist temples in Japan and at the White House.
Each night, a different special guest will drop in to perform a unique collaboration with the famed duo, including uilleann piper Ivan Goff (last seen at Masters in Collaboration), fiddler Dana Lyn (last seen at Celtic Appalachia), pianist Thomas Bartlett (a.k.a. Doveman), Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon, fiddler Cleek Schrey, epiphone guitarist Kyle Sanna, Norwegian hardanger fiddler Dan Trueman, and clarinetist Doug Wieselman.
