Masters of Tradition
In its purest form, Irish traditional music speaks a universal language,' says fiddler Martin Hayes.
As Artistic Director of Masters of Tradition, Hayes has brought together seven of the most compelling artists in Irish music today for a unique concert celebrating the art form. Joining Hayes on fiddle are vocalist Iarla O Lionaird, fiddler Cathal Hayden,guitarists Dennis Cahill and Seamie O'Dowd, button accordionist Mairtin O'Connor and uilleann piper David Power.
With performances of solos, duets, trios and full group collaborations, the evening's format gives real insight into the musical journeys that these musicians, and the masterful music they make, have taken over the years.
Masters of Tradition is named for the highly-respected music festival, devised by Hayes, held each August in the Irish coastal town of Bantry, Co. Cork, in order to create a space where the heart of traditional music could be revealed.  
'The goal of the touring show is to focus on the details and nuances of Irish traditional music,' says Hayes. 'The performers are all masters of their instruments. Through their talent and abilities, the sophistication and artfulness of the music is revealed.'
