Concert Review(s)

Hayes, Frizzel & Cahill

One of Ireland’s greatest fiddlers is back in action again. This time there’s something a little bit different. Martin starts off on his own first with a couple of nice tunes. Then Mr. Frizzel does a few bits on the guitar. They take a break which seems to stretch into eternity. Eventually they come back as a threesome with Dennis Cahill as well. Having Mr. Frizzel adds something a bit different to it. I guess they have to do something a bit different sometimes. Still a good show.

Not to well up on music of Martin, Eileen or Danu!!! So no comment.

Q. What are Martin's favourite albums?
A. Martin has no favourite as each album was carefully thought through before recording but perhaps his first remains outstanding as it was a great sense of achievement due to the fact that he had little or no experience of being in a recording studio and it commenced the road to where he is at now and for that he remains forever grateful.
