WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Frankie Gavin is one of the most visionary and inspiring virtuoso Irish fiddlers in the world; the founder, heart and core of the legendary band De Dannan, with over 16 Cd's, and performances the world over, from The National Concert Hall in Dublin, to the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, to the White House.
The new line-up is led by Frankie Gavin on fiddles, flutes & whistle, with Damien Mullane on accordion, Eric Cunningham on percussion, flutes & whistles, Mike Galvin on bouzouki & guitar, and Michele Lally on vocals.
For many years traditional super group De Dannan were the forerunners in the Irish traditional music world, but after 33 years, 14 albums and a number of changes in the line-up, the group disbanded in 2003. Now original founding member Frankie Gavin has unleashed a new De Dannan which in his own words will reflect a De Dannan of the 21st century.
