Frankie Gavin

Frankie Gavin is an Irish fiddle and flute player, from Corrandulla, County Galway. He is a founder member of 1970s Irish traditional group De Dannan. By the age of 15 he had won the All Ireland Fiddle and All Ireland tin whistle championship[citation needed]. He is known for playing in a very fast and virtuosic Galway style. Gavin has recorded and played with many of the best traditional musicians of his generation. His boundless energy has also driven him to record many side-projects, including work with Elvis Costello, The Rolling Stones, Keith Richards, Yehudi Menuhin, Stéphane Grappelli and Earl Scruggs. He is working on an orchestral work "The Choctaw Symphony" using Irish and Choctaw themes. Together with accordionist Paul Brock, Frankie recorded "Omos Do Joe Cooley" a tribute to the renowned Irish-American accordion player. In recent years, Frankie has released records with the likes of Joe Derrane, Michael McGoldrick and Sharon Shannon.
