Musician Fintan Vallely will launch the new album by Gavin Whelan, Catch the Air, at the Willie Clancy Summer School on Sunday, 7th July at 4.30pm in St. Joseph's Secondary School, Spanish Point, Co. Clare.
Gavin Whelan is widely regarded as one of the finest exponents of the tin whistle in Ireland today. His eponymous debut recording, Gavin Whelan, propelled the tin whistle to centre stage, winning high praise from critics for his crisp, uncluttered phrasing and bright, clean tone.
The album, released in 2001, was hailed by one critic as “beautiful, captivating and formidable”. Gavin has released three further albums since his début, Another Time, In Full Flight and Homelands.
This CD, released on the Cló Iar-Chonnacht label, is another gem and a must for all music lovers.
