MAYBE TONIGHT - FOUR MEN & A DOG
Eclectic, inventive, multi-layered and a lot of good fun, this CD sees Four Men & A Dog at their rumbustious best. Traditional Irish to Country to hard nose Boogie. The magic's not just in the tunes but conjured from a range of influences from both sides of the Atlantic, and the tracks feature top-notch musicianship and guest performances. Tunes from the Old World, songs from the New Paddy's rockin' as well as rambling - Once again The Dogs are off the leash and still out there with the very best.
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. 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 his debut CD one of the finest collections of traditional fiddle music ever heard!
