About The Event

Frankie Gavin is generally regarded as the finest traditional Irish fiddle player of his generation. He has played fiddle and flute since his teenage years winning All-Ireland competitions for both at age 17. Originally influenced by the great Irish and American-Irish fiddle players such as James Morrison, he later found himself playing with stars: The Rolling Stones, Stephane Grappelli and Yehudi Menuhin and for celebrity audiences including four American presidents: John Kennedy on his 1962 visit to Ireland, then Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama.

Perhaps most significantly, the name Frankie Gavin is synonymous with De Dannan, the globally renowned band he founded with Alec Finn in the mid-1970s. After a short break, in the early 2000s, Frankie started a new version of the band with a young line-up.

£2.50 from each ticket will be going to Salisbury Hospice.
