Irish fire

Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill (pictured) will perform at the Byron Community Centre this Sunday, January 7.

Hayes is a supremo Irish fiddler who has won a swag of awards for his virtuosity on the fretless wonder. He now lives in the US but bases his music on the traditional styles of his homeland.

In guitarist Dennis Cahill he has found a musical partner whose intuitive understanding of his music has made the relationship a most exciting one. And productive, with two albums released so far. Their latest, Live in Seattle, certainly captures the fire of their live performances.

The duo played at the recent Woodford Folk Festival where they brought the tent down with their reconstruction of traditional Irish tunes using jazz, classical and blues techniques.

The pairs rapport is freaky even hair-raising at times with both players seemingly able to foresee the others next musical move.

Tickets are $32 pre-sold (available at the venue 6685 5659) or at the door for $35.

The Irish action starts at 8pm.
