glór in association with Transworld Books presents In Conversation with Martin Hayes
glór in association with Transworld Books presents In Conversation with Martin Hayes –a night of conversation and music with renowned fiddler Martin Hayes, on the publication of his memoir Shared Notes.
Martin Hayes is one of Ireland’s most successful and treasured traditional musicians. He won his first of six All-Ireland Fiddle Championships at the age of 13. He is a founding member of Irish-American band The Gloaming. It is hard to imagine him without his fiddle in hand. Harder again to imagine those hands hammering nails on a construction site in the depths of a Chicago winter. Or working on a stock market trading floor. Yet no matter where he went or how he made a living, Martin Hayes never stopped playing. Traditional music was the heartbeat behind everything he did, in a journey that was anything but traditional. Shared Notes will hit shelves in hardback on 14th October.
