Irish fiddle player, Martin Hayes, one of Ireland’s foremost artists and known worldwide for his innovative and soulful interpretations of traditional music, will make a rare solo tour through New England in May, 2019. These intimate performances of tunes and conversation are a rare opportunity to spend time with a great master of the Irish canon.
Martin Hayes’ fiddle playing is rooted in the accent of East County Clare where he grew up playing with his father, the legendary P.J. Hayes, and his Tulla Ceili Band. “The message always coming to me from my father and lots of the finest musicians of County Clare was their idea of musical feeling," says Martin Hayes. "Music had to have feeling or it was nothing."
