Frankie Gavin has been playing traditional music since his teenage years. At the age of seventeen, he won All-Ireland competitions for both fiddle and flute. Originally influenced by some of the great Irish and American-Irish fiddle players such as James Morrison and Michael Coleman, he later found himself playing with stars such as The Rolling Stones, Stephane Grappelli, Elvis Costello and Yehudi Menhuin. All have left their mark on his eclectic approach to music and his globally renowned band De Dannan. The simple fact is that there is no more exciting fiddle player or moving flute player in the world of Irish music today. For this performance, Frankie will be joined by Edel Fox on concertina, one of the most accomplished musicians of her generation and Catherine McHugh, one of the most outstanding young accompanists and fiddle players in Irish traditional music today in the beautiful setting of Newbridge House.
