Celtic Fiddler Kevin Burke
Kevin Burkes fiddle playing has been at the forefront of traditional music for over 30 years.  Whether solo or accompanied, on record or in concert, Burke is an immensely engaging performer. He has been established as a first class musician ever since his work in the early 1970s (with such renowned performers as Arlo Guthrie, Christy Moore and the Bothy Band and with his far-reaching solo album, If the Cap Fits).  During his long musical career Kevin has earned international acclaim in both Europe and America as a solo performer, a teacher and as a member of some of folk musics foremost groups including Celtic Fiddle Festival, and Patrick Street. He is also a featured member of Grammy winner Tim OBriens wonderful crossover band, The Crossing.

Kevins contribution to music was acknowledged by The National Endowment for the Arts when he was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship, the USAs highest honor for excellence in the folk and traditional arts. In Ireland he was given the prestigious Gradam Ceoil award, both acknowledging him 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 himself sometimes puts it.  This is very evident in his live solo release, In Concert, a performance of mostly unaccompanied traditional pieces.

With the great popularity of various groups over the last 25 years or so, many people have forgotten that this kind of music used to be played mainly solo. The bands, groups and accompanists are a relatively recent development so I thought it would be interesting to let people hear the naked fiddle once more.  Kevin Burke

The great Irish fiddler Kevin Burkeplays the fiddle so smoothly, with such buoyancy, and with such relaxed showmanship, that even a large concert hall becomes intimate.    The New Yorker Magazine
