The Lonesome Touch finds Martin Hayes and guitarist Dennis Cahill turning in another collection of lovely, suprisingly innovative Irish folk and celtic music. Hayes and Cahill keep within the traditions of the music, but open it up with luxurious space and inventive phrasing. Like their previous collection, Under the Moon, it's a pretty, enchanting record that shows how Irish music can move forward without losing its roots.
