Frankie and De Dannan for Roscommon

Music-lovers will be delighted to see that Frankie Gavin and De Dannan are taking to the stage at Roscommon Arts Centre on Saturday, 30th January at 8 pm.

  Frankie and De Dannan always bring something different and unique to today’s audiences. Sure, they play furious jigs and reels – it’s always been one of the band’s trademarks, but their music now has other very special qualities.

  Their choice of material, arrangements and style of playing combine powerfully to set traditional Irish music in a wider cultural context. By any standard, theirs is a remarkable achievement, made possible by the genius and vision of Frankie Gavin himself and by the commitment and musical skill of each member of the band. 

  Their varied material on the night will see Frankie (fiddle, flute and whistle), Barry Brady (accordion), Bernadine Casserly (vocals), Dan Bodwell (double bass and vocals), Colm O’Caoimh (guitar and vocals), giving the audience everything from gypsy jazz, contemporary pop music, European classical, and American folk.

  Expect a rousing night of music with a band that really stands out from the crowd. Booking now at the arts centre on 090 66 25824 or www.roscommonartscentre.ie
