Event

Kevin Burke
Kevin Burke returns solo to the series and what can I say about this musician that hasn't been said  His name is synonymous with four decades of growth in world-wide interest in Irish traditional music.  From his early days recording with Arlo Guthrie, through the halcyon days of the Bothy Band, and onto Nightnoise, Patrick Street, Open House, Fiddle Festival, he has stood as the gold standard.  Often emulated by young players, he is the zenith of players in the decorous Sligo style today.  Give him some time solo with just a fiddle, his personality, his stories, and his playful sense of humor, and you will have an evening to truly relish and remember.   Take a look and listen below....


The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world.  It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts.  

Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music.  As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature.

Tickets are $23 in advance, with a $5 discount for WGBH Members.  If you are a member, send an e-mail to celtic@wgbh.org and we will send you the code.

Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!
