Burke, Kevin, An Evening with Kevin Burke

An Evening with Kevin Burke is a live concert recording, bringing the listener directly into the concert theatre for a highly personal and captivating musical experience. Recorded in Ireland, Philadelphia and Kevin’s adopted hometown of Portland, Oregon, the exceptional fiddle music and the engaging stories beautifully capture the charm and intimacy of this renowned fiddler’s solo appearances. To quote from Kevin himself: “When I was young I often found that what the older musicians had to say was just as enriching as the tunes they played. Influenced by those previous generations I often tell stories (usually light-hearted) during my concerts in order to illustrate something about the music. On this CD, I have included excerpts from these stories and personal reflections in an effort to transform the formality of the concert hall into something more reminiscent of an evening with friends gathered together to exchange their stories and their music.“
