Call in your reservations for our April 27 show with Kevin Burke to 401-725-9272.
Kevin Burke’s fiddle playing has been at the forefront of traditional music since the 1970s. Kevin has earned international acclaim in both Europe and America as a solo performer, a teacher, and as a member of some of folk music’s foremost groups. In the mid-80s Kevin was a founding member of two influential groups – Open House and Patrick Street, whose recordings and performances were greeted with great acclaim both in Europe and US. In the mid-90s Kevin was a founding member of yet another enduring traditional group – The Celtic Fiddle Festival, this time with Johnny Cunningham from Scotland and Christian Lemaitre from Brittany. Although Kevin has spent much of his life playing in a group context, he has never lost his love for solo fiddle music – the “naked fiddle” as he himself sometimes puts it. This is very evident in his new live solo release, “An Evening with Kevin Burke.” His contribution to music has received formal acknowledgement on both sides of the Atlantic where he has been the recipient of several awards including Ireland’s Traditional Musician of the Year, 2016, and a National Heritage Fellowship, the USA's highest honor for excellence in the folk and traditional arts.
