Seattle, WA
Share this event:

Kevin Burke's 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, Open House, and Patrick Street. He is also a featured member of Grammy winner Tim OBriens wonderful crossover band, The Crossing.

Kevin is a National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellowship recipient, this countrys highest honor for excellence in the folk and traditional arts.   2010 saw Kevins induction to the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.  Born in London to parents from County Sligo, he was very honored to receive such a tribute from his adopted home state.

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. Today his name is synonymous with Irish fiddle music around the world.

Join us for what is sure to be an evening of engaging Irish fiddling!
