Biography

Kevin Burke is an Irish fiddler. He was born in London to parents from County Sligo in 1950. He took up the fiddle at age eight, eventually acquiring a virtuosic technique in the Sligo fiddling style. He later became a member of the well known Irish traditional music groups The Bothy Band (in 1976) and Patrick Street (in 1986). He settled in Portland, Oregon in 1979. He has played as a longstanding member of the Celtic Fiddle Festival since their inception in the early 1990’s. Burke currently lives in Portland with his wife and two children.

Burke was a 2002 winner of the National Endowment for the Arts’ National Heritage Fellowship.
