Frankie Gavin is one, if not the best of Ireland’s traditional, fiddler players. In a land that produces many prodigiously talented players, that is saying a lot.
Frankie’s name is immediately associated with the group De Dannan which was formed in the 1970s, and is credited with breaking new ground in Irish traditional music through innovative choices of material and arrangements and a unique style of playing. He has recorded and played every genre of music from rock and roll with the Rolling Stones to jazz with Stephane Grappelli and has played for four US presidents. Frankie is also a top class tin whistle and concert flute player.
