Default Frankie Gavin and The Hibernian Rhapsody with Mick Hanly - Trad gig of the year!

Everyman Palace Theatre Presents
Frankie Gavin and The Hibernian Rhapsody
With Support From Mick Hanly
28th May 2006

Featuring Derek Hickey, Carl Hession, Tim Edey, and Michelle Lally, and of course Frankie Gavin, the Hibernian Rhapsody have been critically lauded since their formation last year.

Gavin was a founding member of De Dannan, one of the most influential forces in Irish traditional music, launching the careers of among others, Elenor Shanley and Mary Black. Frankie’s fiddle playing has always been a central part of the groups’ repertoire, and in his new group, The Hibernian Rhapsody Gavin performs in an entirely new way, continuing his innovative approach to traditional music.

Gavin has a gift for absorbing and switching between styles and evidently has paid detailed attention to the variety of Irish regional styles. Philippe Varlet wrote of him: "Frankie Gavin's fiddle playing is technically complex, unabashedly brilliant, and has a pronounced, driving swing which harks back to the sound of the 1920s."

Frankie Gavin and The Hibernian Rhapsody will perform at in Cork for the first time on Sunday, May 28th at the Everyman Palace This one off show will be the only performance in Ireland this summer, prior to the groups performance in August at the World Fleadh in Ballybunion alongside the Gypsy Kings, and during the Ryder Cup festivities in September.

The Man who has shaped traditional Irish music -- The Irish Times

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.
-- Fintan Vallely, Sunday Tribune

Special guest Mick Hanly is now firmly established as one of the truly great Irish songwriters. He is probably best known for penning "Past The Point Of Rescue" which topped the Irish charts for Mary Black and then went on to become a world-wide hit for American country super-star, Hal Ketchum. His appearance at the Everyman Palace with Frankie Gavin and The Hibernian Rhapsody promises to be one of the best live performances of the summer.

Tickets are priced at €25 and can be purchased at the theatre box office on 021 4501673 or on line at www.everymanpalace.com
