Martin Hayes Quartet @ Kilkenny Arts Festival 2019

Wednesday, 14 August 2019, 7.30pm

Martin Hayes makes an eagerly awaited return to St Canice’s with his newest groundbreaking ensemble. Mixing traditional tunes with unconventional instruments – courtesy of guitarist Dennis Cahill, viola d’amore player Liz Knowles, and clarinettist Doug Wieselman – the Martin Hayes Quartet is busy redefining how traditional music can sound.

The result is a beguiling blend of tradition and innovation at once familiar and utterly fresh. For this year’s concert, the quartet is complemented by dancer Sandy Silva, another unique performer whose work takes a fresh approach to traditional forms.
