Imagining Ireland: Martin Hayes Exclusive Worldwide Stream

Online, Tuesday 8th December

The evolving soundtrack of Ireland, Imagining Ireland showcases the most exciting creative artists at work today.

For this one-off worldwide exclusive stream, arguably our leading traditional musician Martin Hayes leads an evening of authentic Irish music and virtuoso interplay. Performing live from NCH, Hayes is joined by jazz pianist Cormac McCarthy and Brian Donnellan on bouzouki, harmonium and concertina.

Rooted in the classical, folk and contemporary worlds, Martin Hayes founded the seminal Irish-American supergroup The Gloaming, whose self-titled debut album won the Meteor Choice Music Prize for Best Irish Album. Their global touring has included more than a dozen shows at Dublin’s National Concert Hall as well as performances at London’s Royal Festival Hall and Barbican. Hayes has collaborated with everyone from Bill Frisell and Yo-Yo Ma to Sting and Paul Simon. Hayes' long-term creative partnership with Dennis Cahill also saw the duo perform for President Obama at the White House.

The concert will be available to tickets holders for 48 hours following the performance
