Founded in 2015 by one of the most celebrated Irish fiddle players of all time, Frankie Gavin and De Dannan bring something different and unique to their audiences. The band’s repertoire includes their trademark sets of lively, sometimes furious jigs and reels – but their choice of material, arrangements and playing style combine to set traditional Irish music in a wider musical and cultural context. This 21st century line-up infuses the band’s inherited music with a bewildering range of influences – from gypsy jazz to contemporary pop music, and from mainstream European classical music to sentimental Irish-American ballads.

Band line-up: Frankie Gavin: Fiddle, Viola, Flute and Whistle, Barry Brady: Accordion, Colm O’Caoimh: guitar and Vocals, Dan Bodwell: Double bass, Bernadine Casserly: Vocals
