Kevin Burke's fiddle playing has been at the forefront of traditional music since the 1970s. His far-reaching solo album, “If the Cap Fits,” and his work with such distinguished performers as Arlo Guthrie, Kate Bush, Christy Moore and the Bothy Band established him as a first-class musician.

Never one to be restricted by geography or genre, Burke's long career has seen several innovative collaborations with notable musicians of differing styles, including Grammy-winning singer and instrumentalist Tim O'Brien; Liam O Maonlai, lead singer of the Hothouse Flowers; classical violinists Gilles Apap and Greg Ewer; old-time favorites The Foghorn String Band; renowned Irish bands Dervish, Solas and Lunasa; and his most recent recording is a collaboration with veteran rock guitarist John Brennan (Poco, Chris Hillman Band and others).

Burke has earned international acclaim in both Europe and America as a solo performer, teacher and member of some of folk music's foremost groups, including the Celtic Fiddle Festival. His contribution to music has received formal acknowledgment on both sides of the Atlantic, where he has been the recipient of several awards, including Ireland's Gradam Ceoil (Traditional Musician of the Year, 2016) and a National Heritage Fellowship, the USA's highest honor for excellence in the folk and traditional arts. Burke has also been honored by his adopted home state with his induction to the Oregon Music Hall of Fame.
