Two masters of the tradition, fiddler Martin Hayes and piper David Power, come to Borris with music to make the heavens swoon. The Gloaming superstar Martin Hayes’s collaboration with Waterford uilleann piper David Power is near flawless, from languid jigs to rollicking reels, braiding together a sound not far off a full-blown ceili.
“Sparsely accompanied fiddle music has rarely sounded so complete and so essential” – Q Magazine
“The opening wail of uilleann pipes, played by David Power, which shifts into swirling music of military glory, beautifully establishes the central opposition of inner pain and public fantasy” – New York Times
