Martin Hayes (Honorary Doctorate from NUI Galway 2019) is recognised all over the world for his soulful interpretations of traditional music, his exquisite musicality and irresistible rhythm. He will talk about the music of his home county of Clare, his influences and his journey through musical genres. He has toured and recorded with guitarist Dennis Cahill for over twenty years, and has collaborated with extraordinary musicians in the classical, folk and contemporary music worlds. He founded the seminal Irish American band, The Gloaming, with whom he tours internationally and with whom he shared the prestigious Meteor Prize in 2014 for their debut album.
‘The great fiddler Martin Hayes speaks with the soul of a poet. A remarkable artist, the only one of his type.’
