GUEST,Ballyholme De Dannan Name Dispute (50) De Dannan Name Dispute 07 Aug 09

There was an amazing discussion on Irish radio this week about fiddler Frankie Gavin's decision to go on the road with a band called "Frankie Gavin & De Dannan".

It appears that two former De Dannan members (Alex Finn and Johnny McDonough) are taking exception to Frankie's use of the band name when none of the new members were in previous incarnations of the group. Furthermore, Alex Finn apparently has legal rights to the De Dannan name.

To add further insult, accordian player Tony McMahon described Alex Finn as a "second rate accompanist".
