On Friday Sept.15th , Studio Red Hook is proud to present for the second time here in Red Hook "An Evening with Kevin Burke...The Naked Fiddle".
World renown Irish fiddler, Kevin Burke, has been at the forefront of traditional music for over 30 years. 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 the exciting Celtic Fiddle Festival and Ireland’s long admired and respected Patrick Street.
Kevin’s contribution to music was acknowledged by The National Endowment for the Arts when he was awarded 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.
"An Evening with Kevin Burke...The Naked Fiddle" promises to be a memorable musical evening not to missed! Beverages and snacks will be offered for sale. BYOB of wine and beer is indeed allowed responsibly!
