Happy birthday Dennis Cahill

Happy birthday Dennis Cahill

It’s Dennis Cahill’s birthday today. I hope he is well and planning to release more music or come visit us here in the UK and play his guitar!

Re: Happy birthday Dennis Cahill

That’s very kind of you but I’ve heard Dennis is far from well at the moment.

Wishing him strength.

One of my favourite musicians. Sad to hear he’s not keeping well. Martin Hayes and Denis Cahill
together i think are the perfect combination of melody player and accompanist.

Chatted with him briefly at Orkney FF a few years ago and he said he was tired of touring, needed a break after 30 years of it. Hope he pulls through. A fine musician on mandolin and guitar, restrained and intuitive.

What a musician - as you mentioned, Bren, exceptional mandolin player. Every time I see/hear a mandolin player I think of a piece he played solo at a gig in Chicago twentysomething years ago; have not heard the likes before or since. Wishing him the best.

Re: Happy birthday Dennis Cahill

A fine player, I hope will tour again soon!

Re: Happy birthday Dennis Cahill

I’m sad to report that Dennis passed away yesterday, Monday.

He will be deeply missed.

Re: Happy birthday Dennis Cahill

Yes I just saw this on FB - I had no idea he was sick and appeared to have a good few years in him yet - another one gone before their time……………..

Re: Happy birthday Dennis Cahill

A great loss. Such an empathetic and musically intelligent player. Great ideas, innovative but grounded

Such a wonderful musician and sympathetic player. He and Martin really had something incredibly special together. It seems we’ve lost a number of great ones in the past couple of years. RIP Dennis. You will be greatly missed.
