November 04, 2018: Kevin Burke

Kevin Burke Kevin Burke's fiddle playing has been at the forefront of traditional music since the 1970s. His far-reaching solo album, "If the Cap Fits" and his work with such performers as Arlo Guthrie, Kate Bush, Christy Moore and the Bothy Band established him early on as a first class musician. He earned international acclaim as a solo performer, a teacher and as a member of some of folk music's foremost groups including Celtic Fiddle Festival and Ireland's long admired and respected Patrick Street. His innovative collaborations include classical, old time, bluegrass, pop and rock as well as the Irish traditional music for which he is so well known. He has received awards on both sides of the Atlantic, including Ireland's Traditional Musician of the Year in 2016, and a National Heritage Fellowship, the USA's highest honor for excellence in the folk and traditional arts. Now living in Portland, Oregon, Kevin continues to tour both solo and with others, sharing his immensely engaging fiddle style and warm stage presence with audiences across the globe.
