Irish fiddle virtuoso plays like a hare on a G string

"IT SEEMS that a biennial feature of the Sydney Festival, echoing our rich Celtic-Gaelic heritage, is a series of concerts by an Irish fiddler of genius.

In 2007 and 2009 it was the sublime Martin Hayes. This year it is Colm Mac Con Iomaire who has not only been the fiddle and keyboard player with the Frames for more than 20 years but has been a regular with the Swell Season. Now, on the back of his excellent debut solo album, The Hare's Corner, he is bringing his band and playing five concerts around Sydney this week and next."
