Frankie Gavin Up Close and Personal

Frankie Gavin and De Dannan are now half way through their Up Close and Personal Tour of Ireland and going down a storm by all accounts.

The title Up Close and Personal relates to the fact that the band are playing several small or out of the way venues that wouldn’t normally expect to host such a well-known act.

Gavin says the idea is to “lift the hearts of the Irish people” during these troubled times.

Having been hit even harder than most by the recession and been forced to accept a European Union bale-out package, Ireland could no doubt do with a little cheering up.

Full marks to Gavin and the band for doing their bit with their unique approach to Irish traditional music.

The final scheduled gig at the moment is in Dublin on 21st March but more dates may be added by then. We’ll let you know of any changes to the band’s Irish tour.
