Dennis Cahill – Litir ó do chara

Dennis Cahill – Litir ó do chara

“Story of Dennis Cahill (1954 – 2022), the master guitarist from Chicago, from his work with legendary fiddler Martin Hayes, to his role in the ground-breaking supergroup The Gloaming. Described by Hayes as ‘the first minimalist in traditional Irish music’, the film examines the innovations which helped shape the course of Irish music. Interviews with musical friends reveal a shy and considered man away from the stage – a man with a sharp wit, a deep understanding of music, and a special love for photography. With contributions from, among others, Liz Carroll, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, Steve Cooney and Martin Hayes.

We would like to especially thank Dennis’ wife Mary and her daughter Clíonadh, as well the Hayes family, all the musicians who took part, and the production team, Dónal O’Connor, Maitiú Ó Casaide, Aaron McGurgan, Ray MacDonnacha, Patricia Murray and Niamh Ni Bhaoill.
