Kevin Burke, traditional style Irish fiddler, will be performing in an intimate house concert in Soquel, CA on Friday, May 5, 2017 at 7:30pm. Kevin was the fiddler of the acclaimed Bothy Band, teaming with the late and legendary guitarist and vocalist Micheal O’Domhnaill for many years, and more recently recording and touring with guitarist Cal Scott, and the extraordinary Celtic Fiddle Festival band, drawing from Irish, Quebecois, and Breton roots music. Kevin has a very wry sense of humor, and his concerts always feature his amusing stories and jokes interspersed between his masterful presentation of extended medleys of tunes, both original and traditional. Information to make reservations and receive directions to the concert are at the Celtic Society of the Monterey Bay‘s website, the non-profit organization sponsoring the event. Tune in to hear Celtic music on KZSC every Sunday morning on “Whimsical Will O’ Wisps” (6-9am), and Sunday afternoons on “Backroads” (noon-2pm).
