Kevin Burke’s fiddle playing has been at the forefront of traditional music since the early 1970’s. His work with such renowned performers as Arlo Guthrie, Christy Moore and the Bothy Band and the release of his far-reaching solo album, “If the Cap Fits” established him as a first class musician. During his long musical career Kevin has earned international acclaim in both Europe and America as a solo performer, a teacher and as a member of some of folk music’s foremost groups including the exciting Celtic Fiddle Festival and Ireland’s long admired and respected Patrick Street.
Kevin’s contribution to music has been acknowledged formally on both sides of the Atlantic. In 2016 he was named as Ireland’s “Gradam Ceoil” winner (Traditional Musician of the Year) and in 2002 he was the recipient of a National Heritage Fellowship, the USA's highest honor for excellence in the folk and traditional arts. (Previous National Heritage Fellows include B.B. King, Doc Watson, and Bill Monroe.)
In 2010 Kevin was inducted to the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and was very honored to receive such an accolade from his adopted home state.
