Frankie Gavin is one of (and perhaps the best of) Irelands premier traditional fiddle players. And in a land that produces many enormously talented players, that is saying a lot. In a nutshell, Frankie has been playing since the age of four, when he was handed a whistle, and has since performed for four presidents beginning at the age of six; is a founding member of the legendary Irish traditional band De Danann, in the forefront of the renaissance of trad Irish music along with Bothy Band and Planxty (and the reformed New De Danann); performs and records with other luminaries in the Irish traditional music scene and more, such as Yehudi Menuhin; was in the 2010 Guinness Book of World records as the world’s fastest fiddler; has just recently win the 2018 Musician of the Year award from Ireland’s prestigious Gradam Ceoil Arts Academy; AND recently performed for the Pope in Dublin!
