Martin Hayes and the Common Ground Ensemble
Martin Hayes is set to bring his latest project the Common Ground Ensemble to The National Concert Hall for what promises to be an exceptional experience.
Although rooted in Irish traditional music the ensemble possesses a wealth of talent spanning improvisation, arrangement, jazz, avant-garde and cutting edge contemporary classical.
“Even though there’ll be plenty of space for people to develop their own parts, the larger picture will be driven by my vision for the music. We’ll be seeing what the tune wants to say and seeing how the band can support that. With years of performing I have a sense of what brings me the deepest joy and what gets to the heart of the music” says Hayes.
