Follies of Youth, The


Another young player who contributed to this project is Sean Gavin from Detroit, son of fiddle player and teacher Mick Gavin from Meelick, County Clare. Here Sean plays the flute on one of his own compositions, a strathspey that somehow must have many stories behind its title. He is joined by his musical friend, fiddle player Devin Shepherd.
