A couple of days ago we announced that renowned Irish guitarist, John Doyle, is appearing in this year’s Festival . We’re equally excited to announce the return of Kevin Burke, legendary Irish fiddle player. He has previously performed at both the 2017 and 2019 Festivals.
He has been described as “Lyric, fluid and precisely as tricky as he needs to be…probably the greatest Irish fiddler living” by The Village Voice.
He has also been said to be “… blessed with a silky touch on the bow that effortlessly moves from one note to the next, creating an aural experience unlike any other in Irish traditional music today.”by Irish Echo.
The New York Times simply states, “One of the great living Celtic fiddlers.”
Kevin will be performing Saturday evening, September 18th, along with John Doyle, and others soon to be announced. In addition, he will presenting a demo contrasting fiddle styles, as well as teaching fiddle technique to intermediate to advanced players.
If describes you, or if you are simply someone who appreciates advanced musicianship, we feel certain that you’ll want to be present at this year’s event!
