Dear Friends of the Festival:
We are in the process of putting together a star line-up of performers for this year’s Festival. In the days to come we will be announcing each of our outstanding performers for 2022. Following each announcement, we will provide more information on each artist on our Festival website, with bios, photos, and links to videos and other online content for that artist. Today we are very pleased 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 the Irish Echo.
The New York Times simply states, “One of the great living Celtic fiddlers.”
Kevin will be performing Saturday evening, September 24th, along with others soon to be announced. In addition, he will be presenting a demo highlighting fiddle styles, as well as teaching fiddle technique to intermediate to advanced players.
Stay tuned for more announcements in the coming days and weeks!
