    Kevin Burke & John Carty in Concert "A lyrical player of emotional electricity" - The Washington Post on Kevin Burke "One of the most accomplished Irish multi-instrumentalists alive. The flourishing diaspora of Irish traditional music had no finer exponent than John Carty" Earle Hitchner, Irish Echo Kevin Burke's fiddle playing has been at the forefront of traditional music for over 30 years. Whether solo or accompanied, on record or in concert, Burke is an immensely engaging performer. He has been established as a first class musician ever since his work in the early 1970's (with such renowned performers as Arlo Guthrie, Christy Moore and the Bothy Band and with his far-reaching solo album, If the Cap Fits). 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 Celtic Fiddle Festival, Patrick Street and Tim O'Brien's wonderful crossover band, The Crossing. Kevin is a National Endowment for the Arts 2002 National Heritage Fellowship recipient and was inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame. John Carty is one of Ireland's finest traditional musicians having been awarded the Irish Television station, TG4's Traditional Musician of the Year in 2003. Carty has three solo fiddle albums, two banjo albums, two group albums and a sprinkling of recorded tenor guitar and flute music recordings under his belt. Born in London, John has established himself among the elite in Irish traditional music and as a staunch supporter of its preservation. Carty developed his love for fiddle, banjo, and flute, all of which he has mastered, through his multi-instrumentalist father who was a member of the Glenside Ceili Band in London in the 1960's. With a firm foundation of both talent and knowledge of the tradition, John has been a welcome addition to many of the great bands of today, including Patrick Street, The Chieftains, and DeDanaan, as well as his remarkable solo career.
