Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill, Tiny Desk Concert.

There can be no praise high enough for the music choices that can be explored on the NPR website.
Much to my delight was the addition of this session filmed for it's Tiny Desk concert series recently.
Martin Hayes, arguably one of Ireland's greatest living traditional musicians along with his long term
musical partner, guitarist Dennis Cahill stepped in to display their fine work last month.
Admittedly traditional Irish music can sometimes border into stereo typical kitch, but with these two extraordinary players, the record is set straight every time with each performance.
This set list includes

The Mountain Lark/Tom Doherty's Reel,
P. Joe's Reel/The Obama Reel,
O'Carolan's Farewell To Music.
