Event

Kevin Burke
Legendary Irish fiddler Kevin Burkebrings his masterful playing and storied solo performance back to the Focal Point!The New York Timesdescribes Burke as "impressively virtuosic...a superior instrumentalist in any idiom," andThe Washington Postcalls him a lyrical player of emotional electricity.Born and raised in London to Irish parents, Kevin was a key figure in Irelands traditional music revival of the 1970s, as a member ofThe Bothy Bandand withChristy Moore,Paul Brady, andAndy Irvine.Burke's solo concerts are special. Though he has spent much of his career in a group context (Bothy Band,Celtic Fiddle Festival, Patrick Street), he has never lost his love for the tradition of solo fiddle music. Hismesmerizing tunes and deeply soulful playing, along with his celebrated stories andwit, make for a fascinating live experience.

Kevin's new album"The Pound Ridge Sessions"with California guitar proJohn Brennan(Eagles, Byrds, Graham Nash), is a departure. They recast Irish tuneswith a rock edge, and bring Sligo soul to classics by Jimi Hendrix, Allman Brothers, Bill Monroe, and bluesmaster Lonnie Johnson."London Town" is a Burke original on lyricsandvocals, describing the vibrant Irish music scene in post-war London. The new CD will be on sale at the concert!

Probably the greatest Irish fiddler living The Village Voice
