Frankie Gavin, who is widely considered to be the world’s greatest Irish fiddle player, entered the Guinness World Records in 2010 as the fastest fiddle player in the world. The band ‘De Dannan’ has been responsible over many years for bringing some of Ireland’s immensely talented traditional performers to the world stage. The current ‘De Dannan’ ensemble is led by Frankie Gavin on fiddle, flutes & whistles with Barry Brady on accordian, Eric Cunningham on percussion, flutes & whistles, Mike Galvin on bouzouki & guitars and Michelle Lally on vocals. In the words of Rob Frabroni, Producer of ‘The Last Waltz’; ‘this current line up tops them all’.
'Electrifying' is an adjective that's too often used to describe certain performances but this is one instance where it's absolutely unavoidable. If you've never been lucky enough to see ‘Frankie Gavin & De Dannan’ perform live, prepare to be... shocked.
