Frankie Gavin and De Dannan
Frankie Gavin and De Dannan bring something different and unique to their audiences. The band’s repertoire includes their trademark sets of lively, sometimes furious jigs and reels –– but their choice of material, arrangements and playing style combine to set traditional Irish music in a wider musical and cultural context. This 21st century line-up infuses the band’s inherited music with a bewildering range of influences – from gypsy jazz to contemporary pop music, and from mainstream European classical music to sentimental Irish-American ballads. The band’s latest recordings, the CD Jigs and Jazz II and their recent single which pairs Handel’s The Queen Of Sheba with Paul Mc Cartney’s Calico Skies, illustrate perfectly the fusion of sounds and influences that now characterise their music.
Band line-up: Frankie Gavin: Fiddle, Viola, Flute and Whistle, Barry Brady: Accordion, Colm O’Caoimh: guitar and Vocals, Dan Bodwell: Double bass, Bernadine Casserly: Vocals

Tickets €20
