Martin Hayes Solo Concert

July 9, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

THE GREAT FIDDLER MARTIN HAYES SPEAKS WITH THE SOUL OF A POET… A REMARKABLE ARTIST, THE ONLY ONE OF HIS TYPE.  – The Sunday Independent

A one-night-only special event at the elegant American Irish Historical Society, right across Fifth Avenue from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Martin Hayes’ unique sound, his mastery of the fiddle, his acknowledgement of the past and his ability to place the tradition within a wider contemporary context, combine to create a unique and insightful interpretation of Irish music. He has drawn inspiration from many musical genres, but remains grounded in the music he grew up with in East County Clare where the tradition he inherited from his late father, P. Joe Hayes, was the formative influence on his musical accent and ideas.

Martin has recorded two acclaimed solo albums  and three duet albums with his longtime guitar partner Dennis Cahill with whom he has toured for over twenty years.  He is a co-founder of the The Gloaming, which won Ireland’s Meteor Choice Prize for Album of the Year and tours concert halls and performing arts centers around the world. Martin is also artistic director of the annual Masters of Tradition Festival in Bantry, West Cork and artistic consultant to the Kilkenny International Festival. He has collaborated with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, the innovative string quartet, Brooklyn Rider, the viola da gamba player, Jordi Savall, jazz guitarist, Bill Frisell and bluegrass legend, Ricky Skaggs, as well as projects in theatre, contemporary dance, television and film.
