Few musical sounds make a more honest and direct statement than duos in the Irish tradition. So we feature pairs this week: the fiddle of Martin Hayes in dialog with Dennis Cahill's guitar, the late Frankie Kennedy whose flute soars in partnership with Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh's fiddle (pron: Nee Weeney), the intertwined voices of sisters Maighread and Triona NĂ­ Dhomhnaill (pron: Nee Gonnel) and Claire Mann on flute, whistle and fiddle, teaming up with bouzouki player and guitarist Aaron Jones.

This episode originally aired the week of March 10.
