Kevin Burke

Event Date: 
Sunday, March 24, 2013 - 8:00pm

Kevin Burke is one of the commanding presences in Irish music. Early in his career he established himself as one of Ireland’s premier fiddlers. He is inextricably linked in the annals of traditional music with his role in the near-legendary Bothy Band in the 1970s. After moving to Portland in 1980, Kevin Burke and Bothy Band guitarist and singer Micháel O Domhnaill teamed up again and produced two classic albums: Promenade and Portland, which received critical acclaim.

Kevin was a founding member of Patrick Street in 1985 and 10 albums later, Kevin still tours with this supergroup all over the world. He has toured extensively with the Celtic Fiddle Festival since the 1990s as well. Being at the forefront of traditional Irish music for nearly 30 years has gained Kevin Burke a remarkable reputation as the consummate artist as both a solo and an ensemble player. Joining the ranks of other great performers like B.B. King and Doc Watson, he was recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts in 2002 and received a coveted National Heritage Fellowship. It’s impossible to list all of this artist’s performing credentials in this space.

Tickets: $25, members $23
