ABOUT THE ALBUM

‘Chewing The Fat’ is the solo debut of London born multi-instrumentalist James Patrick Gavin. A fiddle player and guitarist, he creates folk music that dances the line between tradition and irreverence, London and Ireland, groove and grace. Described as “magnificent” by FolkRadioUK, here he presents a wealth of new original material that weaves together three generations of his own Irish family.

The release 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.

"Stunning" - Irish Independent
