   Kevin Burke's fiddle playing has been at the forefront of traditional music for over 30 years. His work during the 1970's with Arlo Guthrie, Christy Moore and the Bothy Band established him as a first class musician and brought him international acclaim in both Europe and America. Kevin has also been a founding member of two influential bands: the traditional Celtic group, Patrick Street, and the more eclectic ensemble, Open House. He has also gained recognition as an exciting soloist with his far-reaching solo albums.

   The New York Times describes Kevin as "a superior instrumentalist in any idiom......impressively vituosic", the Washington Post writes of his "lyrical style that is always emotionally electric", and the Irish Times says that "Burke≥s fiddling is one of the high spots of the current Irish musical scene". In 2002 he received a National Heritage Fellowships Award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
