James Patrick Gavin, hailing from North London, is a multi-instrumentalist composer with musical and family roots running from Northern Ireland to the Basque Country.
Steeped in Irish music, his unique approach to guitar and fiddle is described as “magnificent in its irreverence” (Folk Radio UK). Working at the forefront of London’s folk music scene, James can be found amongst the ranks of TEYR, The Rad Orchestra, Jez Hellard and beyond.
The debut solo album ‘Chewing The Fat‘ coming 2018 explores Gavin’s musical heritage and actuality, navigating the lay-lines between the London Irish and Fermanagh.
The collection of originals and traditionals features guest musicians Tommie Black-Roff, Seamus Gavin, Jez Hellard, Dominic Henderson, J Eoin, Órlaith McAuliffe, Hugh O’Neill and Tad Sargent.
