According to official reports the traditional Irish guitarist, Dennis Cahill sadly passed away on Monday evening (June 21, 2022) at the age of 86. May the legend rest in power.

The tragic passing news of Cahill, well known for his lengthy musical partnership with Irish fiddler Martin Hayes, was confirmed and announced in a statement shared as a notice on his website.

The statement, “His beloved Mary by his side as she has throughout his journey. Just moments before — we were comforting Dennis while The Lament for Limerick from Dennis’ album with Martin was on in the background — and as the track advanced to My Love is in America, Mary turned off the player, leaned over to hug and kiss Dennis one last time – and then he was gone…”

Born in Chicago in 1954 to immigrant parents from Co Kerry, beloved Dennis kicked off playing guitar from the age of nine, later resuming to study at the Chicago Music College. In 2001, an article in The Irish Times defined his complements as “never anything less than inspiringly cerebral”.

“These days he chooses the space between the notes as his playground, pirouetting with the agility of a Nureyev, with guitar and gorgeous mandolin as his only safety net.”
