MARTIN HAYES MANAGEMENT
Have just taken on management for Martin Hayes. I've known Martin since I first worked with him at the Blas Summer School of Irish Traditional Music and Dance at the Irish World Academy at UL in 1997. I'll be working with him towards helping him manage his hectic performing schedule - with his long-term musical partner Dennis Cahill as well as his work with The Gloaming and forthcoming concerts with the internationally renowned Spanish early music performer Jordi Savall later this year. I'll also be working with Martin towards keeping his website and social network sites updated to include his performance schedules.

SEA ROAD SESSIONS JANUARY 2015 TOUR
First band that hired me after I set up was Alan Kelly's wonderful new group Sea Road Sessions, an dream lineup of a band that brings together the genius of guitarist Ian Carr with the sublime vocals of Kris Drever, along with Alan himself on accordion, Steph Geremia on flute and vocals, fiddler Eamon Coyne and Stafan Lindfors on double bass. They had a really successful tour of Ireland with great feedback. Lovely to work with Alan and hope to do so again in the not-too-distant future.
