Seán Gavin

Flute Player, Uilleann Piper, Instructor

About Seán

 A master of the uilleann pipes, Irish flute, and tin whistle, Seán Gavin is one of the most highly regarded Irish musicians of his generation. He is the first and only musician born outside Ireland to win the prestigious Seán Ó Riada Gold Medal. His most recent recording, Music from the Lost Continent, with fiddler Jesse Smith, accompanist John Blake, and bodhran player Johnny “Ringo” McDonagh, was hailed by The Irish Echo as “traditional music at its best!”

With recordings, lectures, and performances around the globe to his credit, Seán is back in his native Detroit, where he continues to play, teach, and promote traditional Irish music. In May 2022 he will begin a musical pilgrimage across the USA, meeting other musicians and sharing the craic and the tradition in performance and lectures along the way.
