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, and the intertwined voices of sisters Maighread and Triona Ni Dhomhnaill (Pron: Myrud and Treena Nee Gonnel).
