    Kevin Burke–Sunday, August 20

    Kevin Burke is an Irish master fiddler, considered one of the finest living Irish musicians. For almost forty years he has been at the forefront of Irish traditional and Celtic music, performing and recording with groundbreaking groups The Bothy Band, Patrick Street, and the Celtic Fiddle Festival.

    In addition to his solo albums, Kevin has worked with Christy Moore, Andy Irvine & Paul Brady, Mícheál Ó Domhnaill, Jackie Daly, Ged Foley and Cal Scott, among dozens of other important musicians.

    In 2002, Kevin was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, the highest honor given in the United States for folk and traditional music. In 2016, Kevin was named “Gradam Ceoil” (Musician of the Year) in the traditional-music awards presented by the Irish-language TV channel TG4. He’s been at Fifth Street before and it’s a thrill to have him back.
