Martin Hayes Quartet @ Kilkenny Arts Festival

Thursday, 16 August 2018, 7.30pm

Not content with the runaway success of The Gloaming, in recent years Martin Hayes has formed another new group dedicated to pushing the boundaries of traditional music.

The Martin Hayes Quartet adds Doug Wieselman’s bass clarinet and Liz Knowles’ viola d’amore to the legendary partnership of Hayes’ fiddle and Dennis Cahill’s guitar to create radical new takes on familiar tunes. Since its appearance at the 2016 Festival the quartet has released a stunning album, The Blue Room, and now it returns to St Canice’s for another thrilling blend of tradition and innovation.
