The Lark in the Afternoon: Frankie Gavin & Catherine McHugh

Acclaimed Irish Traditional artists Frankie Gavin & Catherine McHugh are joining us as part of our “Lark in the Afternoon” series for a Sunday Lunchtime performance. After the show, there will be a session where people are encouraged to bring their instruments & join in. Frankie Gavin has been playing traditional music since his teenage years – at the age of seventeen, he won All-Ireland competitions for both fiddle and flute. Having played with The Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello and Yehudi Menuhin and being synonymous with the globally renowned band De Dannan, Frankie has cemented himself as one the most exciting fiddle or moving flute players in the world today.

Catherine McHugh is one of the most outstanding young accompanists and fiddle players in Irish music today. She grew up in the ancient Maigh Seola territory steeped in legends of Irish traditional music and, as a result, was influenced greatly by the outstanding musicians of East Galway. Catherine is in high demand as an accompanist and fiddle player and has performed at many festivals and concerts, including the Birmingham Trad Fest, Ennis Trad Fest and Féile Strokestown. She recently appeared on the critically acclaimed debut solo albums of banjo player Theresa O’Grady and Sligo accordion virtuoso Daithí Gormley.
