CATHAL HAYDEN - One of Ireland's finest traditional musicians, fiddle player Cathal Hayden's talent coupled with his technical skill and feel for the music he plays results in an outstanding CD of Reels, Jigs, Slides and more.

Cathal is a natural fiddle player - distinctive, original and inventive. His fiery virtuoso fiddle style is apparent throughout and his banjo playing skills can be found on many tracks also. The verve and excitement throughout these songs make this CD one of the finest collections of traditional fiddle music ever heard.

He brings new life to old tunes like "The Boys of Ballisodare", "The Homeruler" and the "Connachtmans Rambles". Outstanding fellow musicians on this CD: Arty McGlynn (guitars), Brian McGrath (keyboards), Liam Bradley (Percussion) Donal Murphy (Accordion) & Rod McVey (Keyboards). This debut album is a significant contribution to traditional music in Ireland. Cathal Hayden is a catalyst for the formation of "Four Men & A Dog" a group that has established themselves as one of the top Irish traditional bands of all time.
