Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill

Martin Hayes is considered one of the most extraordinary violinists to emerge from the world of traditional Irish music. Dennis Cahill is acknowledged for his breakthrough guitar skills in the genre. The two met in Chicago and formed the jazz-rock band Midnight Court, but have returned to their Irish roots to create an innovative, New Age spin on Irish music, while maintaining the essential traditional sound. Their 2009 show in Red Hook was sold out. Hayes and Cahill performed at the White House last year and are currently on a worldwide tour. Studio Red Hook presents Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill at St. Paul’s Parish Hall. $34. Red Hook. (845) 802-6515.
