This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… The Martin Hayes Quartet October 21, 2017

Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....

Another Martin Hayes adventure and one that I’ll be seeing next Saturday in the Concert Hall with the new album released on the day before. Hayes has worked with many artists and these of course include The Gloaming. This venture is with guitarist and long time collaborator Denis Cahill, Doug Wieselman who plays the Bass Clarinet and Liz Knowles on the Viola/Violin.
The initial tune from the album “The boy in the gap” really uses the Bass Clarinet beautifully and adds to the usual Hayes sound. The small clip on the recording of the album in Bantry House is nicely put together too. Brennans Reel is beautifully paced and again you get to hear the influence of all parts of the quartet in the sound.
The clips from The Irish Arts Centre in New York were recorded prior to the album being recorded so I can only imagine the album will be excellent.
