Margeson on the Music June 2010



Kevin Burke’s new album is entitled, Suite. The first thing you are going to have to do is drop the idea that you know what a Kevin Burke album will sound like. Any reader of this site knows, or should know, who Kevin Burke is. The credentials speak for themselves. Of course, he was the fiddler for the iconic Bothy Band of the early 70’s. The Bothy Band was one of the progenitors of a resurgent traditional music era that has only grown since the band was joined by the likes…

August 2010 sees the second anniversary of the great Ronnie Drew R.I.P. of "The Dubliners" who passed away in 2008 after a long battle with cancer.
