“The great East Clare fiddler Martin Hayes commands greater reverence and awe than almost any contemporary folk artist.” —Glasgow Life

Known worldwide for his soulful interpretations of traditional Irish music and as founder of The Gloaming, Martin Hayes has collaborated with Paul Simon, Sting, Cassandra Wilson, Bill Frisell, Ricky Skaggs, Brooklyn Riders and with Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble on the Grammy-winning album Sing Me Home (2016). He created his own critically-acclaimed quartet to expand upon the sonic possibilities of the Irish canon. Teaming up again with long-time collaborator guitarist Dennis Cahill, they are joined by classically-trained Irish-American fiddler Liz Knowles (String Sisters) and bass clarinetist Doug Wieselman (Lou Reed/Laurie Anderson/Antony and the Johnsons), who bring vast backgrounds from jazz to classical to indie rock. Their first album, The Blue Room, recorded live and largely impromptu, has been described as “revelatory” (Glasgow Life); ‘thrilling” (Financial Times); and “especially divine” (The Sunday Business Post).
