Re: The Butterfly

An interesting collaboration between the worlds of classical music and trad.

It’s available to pre-order now:

"Recorded in 2016, the album celebrates a decade-long musical friendship between celebrated Irish fiddler and New York’s omnivorous string quartet. This project, which dates back to 2009, was Martin Hayes’ first major collaboration outside the Irish tradition. In addition to featuring the premiere recording of “Maghera Mountain”, (written by Hayes as a teenager), "The Butterfly" sought to define a common ground through the inclusion of several of the most widely known tunes within the repertoire, such as O’Neill’s March and The Butterfly."
