Frankie Gavin is one, if not the best, of Ireland’s premier traditional fiddle players. And in a land that produces many prodigiously talented players, that is saying a lot.

In a nutshell, Frankie ha been playing since the age-of four since performed for four american presidents. Ireland titles on the flute and fiddle at age 17; is a founding Danann and more; performs and records with other luminarie such as Yehudi Menuhin, Elvis Costello, Stephane Grappelli, 2010 Guinness Book of World Records. Vallely says of Frankie’s playing: “Innovation may be the buzz-word in Traditional music, but Frankie Gavin’s digressions are not in the common areas of tempo and superficial – style impressions. His contemporary borrowings of art-deco and music-ha/1 lrishness are re-jigged in origional avenues of exploration. Frankie continues exploring new avenues with his other bands, KGB (with Dermot Byrne and Paddy Keenan – the Living Legends), the Provenance, and his Roaring 20’s Irish Orchestra.
