The event creator says
FRANKIE GAVIN has been playing fiddle and flute both solo and in bands since his teenage years. Originally influenced by some of the great Irish and American-Irish fiddle players, James Morrison, Michael Coleman, The Flannagan Brother and flute player John McKenna, he later found himself playing with stars such as Stephane Grappelli, Elvis Costello, Yehudi Menhuim and The Rolling Stones as well as with some of the great contemporary players and singers of traditional Irish music.
All have have left their mark on his eclectic approach to music. There is no more exciting fiddle player or moving flute player in the world of Irish music today. He was a founder member of the original De Danann in the mid-1970s and toured the world with this outfit for thirty years.
TOMMY McCARTHY and LOUISE COSTELLO met in Boston in 1986, where both were part of the city’s thriving traditional music scene. They married in 1992 and in 1996, opened the now iconic bar, The Burren, which is a mecca for traditional music in the area.
Born and raised in London, Tommy spent much of his teenage years in West Clare. His playing is influenced by his father’s and the greats from Clare, such as Bobby Casey & Willie Clancy.
Multi-instrumentalist Louise is from Galway. She too comes from a musical family and grew up playing with her father, Denny, local fiddlers Joe Morris and Jim O’Brien and flute player Joe Collins.

Admission is $10 for members and $15 for non-members.
