An Evening With Kevin Burke - Tunes & Stories

$ 16.00
“An Evening with Kevin Burke”, was released early 2019 from Loftus Music,(LM009,) and is a live concert recording. It brings the listener directly into the concert theatre for a highly personal and captivating musical experience from this renowned fiddler. 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 his solo appearances.

To quote from Kevin himself: “ When I was a young boy I often found that what the older musicians had to say was just as intriguing and enriching as the tunes they were playing. Influenced by those previous generations I often tell stories (usually light hearted and sometimes true) during my concerts in order to illustrate something about the music …… On this CD, I have included various 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. “
