An evening of stories and Irish fiddle tunes in a cozy pub setting with the legendary Kevin Burke.

About this Event

For nearly four decades fiddler Kevin Burke has been at the forefront of Irish traditional music and Celtic music, performing and recording with the seminal groups The Bothy Band, Patrick Street, and the Celtic FiddleFestival. Burke has been awarded a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, the highest honor given in the United States for folk and traditional arts.

There may be no better place to hear him play and tell stories than up close and personal in a pub setting like Stony Lake Brewing with a craft-brewed ale.

As Kevin explains on his website, “I started to think that, with the great popularity of various groups over the last twenty-five years or so, many people have forgotten that this kind of music used to be played mainly solo. The bands, groups and accompanists are a relatively recent development (in fact one great musician from an older generation told me not long ago that ‘accompanists are a bit like vice presidents — you don’t really need ’em’) so I thought it would be interesting to let people hear the ‘naked’ fiddle once more.”

Whether playing solo or with a band, Burke displays dazzling technique and a vast repertoire.
