Kevin Burke’s masterful playing and storied solo performances have been at the forefront of traditional music since the 1970’s. In the US he received a National Heritage Fellowship from the NEA, in Ireland 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 sometimes puts it. His solo concerts are mesmerizing, you feel like a fortunate guest in the home of this gracious master of the Irish tradition.
“Solo fiddle really doesn't come much better than this. “ Alex Monaghan, Folk World
