Martin Hayes plays tunes with such care that every note hangs in the air. It is hard to describe such beautiful music in words. Buy the album and play it and perhaps better talents than myself can evoke the soulfulness of this music into words.

Martin Hayes's fiddling style is like none other in the known world! Thoughtful, lyrical, relaxing, intuitive, liberating, hypnotic, and totally addictive. It constantly amazes me what different minds can do with a violin/fiddle. A reminder that the music doesn't come from the instrument (a bit like photography..) but from the man, from the spirit.

Martin Hayes is a mucician who chooses to play his instrument his own way. The results are unusual and beautifull. The sounds from his violin are played directly from his soul. I first heard the tune "Morning Star" on the radio and was captured. I found this album and it is full of a whole compilation of Martin Hayes's beautifull talented playing.

This CD is absolutely beautiful. 23 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Martin Hayes is a world-class fiddle player, and every single piece on this disc is gorgeous. Hayes has a thoughtful, contemplative style that is absolutely amazing, without being the slightest bit syrupy or self-involved. (I have heard people complain that Hayes' interpretations are far too slow, but I don't find it to be a problem.) He even makes this style work well on faster pieces. I cannot possibly recommend this disc enough.

More than 5 Stars...What a super great fiddler... 14 Nov 2001
By GreenParrot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You can't go wrong with Martin. A really nice guy, and a majorly talented Irishman. This man can take any Irish tune and make it sing. His style is smooth and lyrical, it can make you feel relaxed even while you're tapping your toe to the lively jigs and reels. You feel the emotion he puts into every note he plays. His slower tunes are just awsome! He carries you along on each note, making you anticipate the next. His playing is magic. He deserves 10 stars. This CD is a great collection. I also recommend his self titled CD Martin Hayes...If you love Irish fiddle, you won't be sorry.

Martin's music opens your heart and enters your soul ! 9 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first of three albums. Martin is one of Ireland's tops fiddlers. This album is beautiful. Something for everyone that loves Irish traditional music. Ranging from lovely slow tunes to tunes that will set your heart flying. Each album just gets better. Don't miss the chance to see for yourself.

I have a shelf full of Irish music but nothing compares to the sensitive and soulful music of Martin Hayes. I love this CD. Every cut is fabulous. I met him briefly after a performance at Princeton University and found him to be genuine and gentle soul. In his performance there he was "in the zone" and put us all there. I was afraid that the intensity would not carry through on a CD but I love this disk.Highly recommended.
