“All around the United States in Irish music communities there are musicians who, with their combination of musicianship and enthusiasm, draw players to the music. New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Boston all have these singular people. In Minneapolis/St. Paul, that person is Martin McHugh. A gem of a person, he’s that player that we all gather around—it’s as much about his company as it is about his music. Marty’s love of the music and his beautiful steady playing have influenced an entire generation in Minnesota.” –Liz Carroll, Chicago
