Fiddler Martin Hayes grew up in County Clare on Ireland’s west coast, a place known as the capital of traditional Irish music. He took up the fiddle at age seven, and by thirteen he had won the All-Ireland Fiddle Competition. For more than two decades he has toured the world with American guitarist Dennis Cahill, and on September 16 they’ll be performing at SUNY Potsdam as part of the Community Performance Series. Joel Hurd spoke with Martin Hayes last week.
