Kevin Burke, March 25th, 2023

One of the greatest fiddlers of this or any generation, Kevin Burke is known far and wide, a legend in traditional Irish music. His bow has driven the Bothy Band, Patrick Street, Open House and Celtic Fiddle Festival. He was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship in the US, and in Ireland the prestigious Gradam Ceoil Award  His solo performances of flawless unaccompanied fiddle, delivered with humorous stories of the tunes and their makers, are an absolute delight. Kevin’s easy and welcoming manner leaves the audience feeling like privileged guests, and with a richer understanding of this great tradition. In whatever context, be it guesting with Dervish or Lunasa, with Christy Moore, in a band, or solo, Kevin Burke’s fiddle is a dynamic melodic force, the voice of the master.

“A fiddle icon.”

Irish Music Magazine

Solo fiddle really doesn’t come much better than this. “

Alex Monaghan, Folk World

A lyrical player of emotional electricity.”

The Washington Post

Burke imparts a rhythmic intensity that is remarkably powerful…a superior instrumentalist in any idiom…impressively virtuosic.”

The New York Times

Help Make a Difference!

Using living history and the authentic setting of historic ships, we provide today’s youth with the opportunity to build character, confidence, gain self-reliance, and learn the value of teamwork.

Kelly, a 5th grader who attended our Age of Sail program, had this to say about her experience:

“I really learned a lot on the ship, but I mostly learned how to work together even if you don’t like somebody. The thing that we had to do most was work together because if we didn’t we wouldn’t have got through it all.”

Thanks to your generosity and support, we can continue to complete critical preservation and restoration projects in and around the National Maritime Park, while also offering impactful, hands-on educational programs.

You are a part of our success! Give boldly and partner with us to impact the lives of our youth through historical preservation and innovative education programs like the Age of Sail program. Please consider contributing to our Annual Fund today with a tax-deductible donation.
