Cathal Hayden’s long awaited debut banjo CD ‘Hooked on Banjo’ was recently launched at the Brantry Fleadh 2016 to great acclaim. Featuring some of the biggest names in Irish Music – Mairtin O’Connor, Seamie O’Dowd, John Joe Kelly, Brain McGrath, Naill Murphy, Kevin Doherty and Nicky Scott the album has already received some excellent reviews. Siobhan Long from the Irish Times described it as ‘a force to be reckoned with, complex and elegant in equal measure and a very fine snapshot of a musician in full swing’. Christy Moore shares a similar opinion -‘a beautiful album with tunes carefully chosen to form a perfect mixture of old and new’

Cathal has put together a mini tour to celebrate the launch of the album and will be performing here at the Oriel Centre Dundalk Gaol on Thursday 22nd September
