On June 22, at 6 p.m. Frankie Gavin and pianist Catherine McHugh will perform a live night of traditional Irish music in the historic 1825 Sayre Barn at the Southampton History Museum. In the event of inclement weather, the music will move indoors to the Rogers Mansion.

Over the course of his career, he has played with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello, Earl Scruggs, Stephane Grappelli, James Galway and many others He also was a founding member of the Irish folk group De Dannan.

Along with U-2, De Dannan was a key part of the Irish musical renaissance that opened the door to cross genre exploration of an Irish nature. De Dannan’s groundbreaking “Half Set in Harlem” introduced and intertwined African American rhythms into the Irish musical fabric.

In recent years Gavin has been a part of several different musical projects like the Roaring 20s Irish Orchestra and The Monte Carlo Philharmonic. Currently he is working with Catherine McHugh, who is widely regarded as Ireland’s foremost piano accompanist and is featured on his recent album “Port Eireann.”

Tickets to “Frankie Gavin Live” on June 22 are $30 at southamptonhistory.org. Southampton History Museum is 17 Meeting House Lane, Southampton.
