Martin Hayes (fiddle) and Dennis Cahill (guitar).

Martin Hayes is being hailed as the finest Irish fiddler of his generation. Born in County Clare and now making Seattle, Washington his home, Hayes at 33 years of age had already won both of Ireland's top music awards, including the Irish "Grammy" for Best Traditional Musician. Over recent years, Hayes and his musical collaborator Dennis Cahill have been stunning audiences across Europe and North America.

The Lonesome Touch captures the astonishing musical kinship between two master players, and is their first recording together. In the manner of great jazz duos, Hayes and Cahill inspire and urge each other on, trading passages, stretching out and digging in.

"Unspeakably beautiful."
