From the Celtic Junction Arts Center in St. Paul, Minnesota on Facebook:
“Frankie Gavin in Concert with Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello on November 11th.
“Innovation may be the buzz-word in Traditional music, but Frankie Gavin’s digressions are not in the common areas of tempo and superficial style-impressions. His contemporary borrowings of art-deco and music-hall Irishness are re-jigged in original avenues of exploration. His dextrous treatment of troublesome tunes might get even the Pope out on the floor, his orchestration could break hearts. A superbly uncompromising player, he makes refreshment of the old by picking out and polishing every detail and setting it off in a steady, listenable pace. Gavin edgy and brilliant on both fiddle and flute, with always the most meticulous attention given to tone and variation. Live, his tune sets are perfectionism that drive and are driven by an audience spontaneity that spurs Gavin to push fiddle from shriek to rasping bass.” – Fintan Vallely, Sunday Tribune”
Lots of interest in this Salon Concert: Gavin, McCarthy and Costello Nov 12th! #IAHC #irishmusic
