The holder of the Guinness World Record for “Fastest Fiddle Player in the World” is coming to Carlow’s GB Shaw Theatre as Frankie Gavin and De Dannan take to the stage on February 10.
Their 32-county tour is an effort by the band to “lift the hearts of the Irish people during this extraordinary economic climate in Ireland.”
The band’s current lineup has performed in locations from the White House and US Capitol to Beijing Opera House and in addition has performed and recorded with musical luminaries including The Rolling Stones.
The current ‘De Dannan’ ensemble is led by Frankie Gavin on fiddle, flutes and whistles, with Barry Brady on accordion, Eric Cunningham on percussion, flutes and whistles, Mike Galvin on bouzouki and guitars, and Michelle Lally on vocals.
Tickets cost €20 and are available from 059 9172400 and www.gbshawtheatre.ie.
