Irish music duo Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill will perform their critically acclaimed interpretations of traditional Irish music in their third Studio Red Hook appearance on Saturday, April 23 at 8 p.m. Hayes will also give a Fiddle Master Class at 2 p.m.

NPR called Hayes and Cahill “one of the best fiddlers on the planet and a subtle guitar master,” respectively. Hayes and Cahill have been together for two decades. They have performed all over the world at such venues as Lincoln Center, the Royal Albert Hall and the Sydney Opera House, as well as for President Obama and leaders of the European Union.

Hayes and Cahill have just released a second CD with their Irish supergroup the Gloaming. The Gloaming’s debut album landed on best-of lists from NPR to the Irish Times and the Guardian, and won Ireland’s “Grammy,” the Meteor Choice Prize, for its groundbreaking new Irish music.


The concert and master class take place at St. Paul’s Hall at 7412 South Broadway in Red Hook. Tickets cost $34 for the concert $50 for the class. Tickets, class reservations and more information are available at www.studioredhook.com.
