Mairtin O Connor Trio
Individually recognised as figureheads of the tradition, Mairtin O’Connor, Cathal Hayden, Seamie O’Dowd have built solid reputations as masters with astounding skill, diversity and virtuosity. Together they produce a vibrant and musically charged experience that redefines one’s concept of brilliance, verging on perfection. The three musicians have built a formidable musical relationship over the last few years gigging together frequently as well as collaborating in the studio.
The catalyst for this was Máirtín when he invited the others to play on his ground-breaking ‘Road West’ album and again later on the ‘Rain of Light’ recording, much of which went down live such was the musical and personal rapport that had developed between them. If this musical powerhouse does not get you to your feet, nothing will.
