Fiddle legend Kevin Burke is considered one of Irish music’s luminaries, from his early days with The Bothy Band to his celebrated solo performances. The recipient of a National Heritage Fellowship from the NEA in the US, and in Ireland the prestigious Gradam Ceoil award, he is acknowledged as a master of the tradition. 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 sometimes puts it. A London native, Kevin inherited his love of Irish music from his parents who emigrated from County Sligo. Burke’s music career began in 1974 with a move to Ireland and joining seminal Irish group The Bothy Band. Since then, he has formed the renowned bands Celtic Fiddle Festival, Patrick Street, and Open House, and worked with many great artists including Arlo Guthrie, Kate Bush, Christy Moore. Witness a master at play.
