Notes from the Road : Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill Head West

Martin & Dennis return to America next week! Their Western swing starts in Canada on May Day (Qualicum show is already sold out!) then drops down into California for a few concerts -- including one of their favorite haunts, Freight & Salvage -- before they round up in New Mexico and Colorado, where they'll do workshops too. Tune in to their radio appearances. Full tour dates below.

Earlier this month Martin had a thrill, asked by Paul Simon to join him on the Dublin stop of his world tour with Sting! Martin played the fiddle solo on Simon's new song "Dazzling Blue" :


And Martin & Dennis are still reeling from winning Ireland's top music award, the Meteor Choice, for their debut CD with The Gloaming! They've had a few weeks to rest up after their international trot with The Gloaming in February and March (Dublin, London, Australia, New Zealand, and Mexico City), and after their duo shows on the East Coast in March, including a great night at NYC's Highline Ballroom, and the next night at the Irish Arts Center sitting in with Mick Moloney, Jimmy Keane, Robbie O'Connell, and the Irish Echo's Dan Neely. Hope to see you at a show, and thanks for sharing the news!
