Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill
The Fenians Fremantle and Freedom Festival kicks off this Friday, January 5 with ten action-packed days and nights of music, arts, films, feasting and more to enjoy. It’s the first festival of its kind in Australia commemorating 150 years since the last convict ship, the Hougoumont arrived on our shores in Fremantle from Ireland with 62 Irish Fenians on board.

While there’s a whole stack of amazing events to look forward to, there are few set to be as captivating as catching Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill in Concert on the opening night of the festival, Friday January 5 at the John Curtin College of Arts Theatre in the heart of Fremantle.

Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill are two of the world’s leading artists in traditional Irish music. Their adventurous, soulful interpretations of traditional tunes are recognized all over the world for their exquisite musicality and irresistible rhythm. For over two decades, the Irish fiddler and American guitarist have performed at major concert halls and festivals around the globe. You can find out more about these amazing artists and the event here, or just check out the incredible video of them below performing Live at the Irish Arts Centre in New York.

They’ll be supported by Aria award winner, songbird and folkloric explorer Kavisha Mazzella on what’s set to be a huge night kicking off the festival and your weekend in fine fashion.
