Bays & Coyne - Irish fiddle & bouzouki & songs

Support by local Albuquerque rising star Grace Broadhead and Scott Estes

Randal Bays & John Coyne bring power and passion to the traditional music of Ireland, playing the old music with an intensity not usually heard outside of a late night pub session in Ireland. Fiddle tunes… the reels and the jigs that are the hallmark of the Irish tradition, plus a great selection of songs, a few stories (some true), often a guest musician or dancer jumping in… all of this delivered with a heartfelt wish to share this magnificent tradition with their audience. Randal lives in Seattle and has been seriously obsessed with Irish fiddle music for… well, let’s say a very long time. He’s recorded and toured in the US, Ireland and Europe with Martin Hayes, Daithí Sproule James Kelly and many more. As Fiddler Magazine says, “Randal Bays is one of the finest Irish fiddlers one could ever hope to hear.” John Coyne hails from Limerick, Ireland and has been resident in Boston for some years. His excellent bouzouki playing and fine singing have made him the “first call” accompanist for many great traditional musicians including Mary McNamara, Mickey Dunne and Frankie Gavin.
