Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill are two of the world’s leading artists in traditional Irish music. Their adventurous, soulful interpretations of traditional tunes are recognised the world over for their exquisite musicality and irresistible rhythm. The Irish fiddler and American guitarist have performed together for over two decades and were co-founders of the Irish supergroup The Gloaming.

In their long collaboration, the fiddler Martin Hayes and the guitarist Dennis Cahill have found intriguing possibilities within the traditional Irish repertory — glimmers of jazz, minimalism and chamber music — without diluting the traditional spirit.The New York Times
