I wouldn’t call it “dream music”—-much more energetic and grounded in traditional Irish music than that. I loved the dynamic range and interplay between the instruments. The virtuosity of all was thrilling…and the dancer was a particular treat. Martin Hayes was the heart of the group, from the sweetness of the slower passages to his blazing dance tunes. The concert felt like an Ark performance in its informality and spontaneity (that’s a compliment).
