Martin Hayes is a landmark album from one of the most skillful and soulful fiddlers alive. Hayes, originally from Clare and now living in Chicago, has won six All-Ireland fiddle championships, and can trace his roots directly back to the Tulla Ceili Band, in which he played along with his father P.J. Hayes. You will be awed by the range and intricacy of his playing, not to mention by his first rate choice of tunes. With classical guitarist Randall Bays and pianist Jim Chapman.
