After wowing fans last Christmas, Frankie Gavin and the New De Dannan return to Castlebar on Friday July 30, as part of the Friday nights summer cabaret shows.
For many years traditional supergroup De Dannan were the forerunners in the Irish traditional music world but after 33 years, 14 albums, and a number of changes in the line up, the group disbanded in 2003. Last August original founding member and world famous fiddle player Frankie Gavin came to the Royal Theatre and unleashed a new De Dannan which, in his own words, “will reflect a De Dannan of the 21st century”.
The new De Dannan line up is led by original De Dannan member Frankie Gavin on fiddle, flutes, and whistles with Michelle Lally on vocals, Damien Mullane on accordion, Mike Galvin on bouzouki and guitars, and Eric Cunningham on percussion, flutes, and whistles.
Dining options available on the night include four course meal in the Lady Lavery Restaurant or Royal Platters from just €20 for two, including a bottle of wine. Make a night of it at The Royal Theatre Castlebar this summer with cabaret shows running until August.
