If the Cap Fits [Audio CD] Burke, Kevin

Notify me when this product is available:

Kevin Burke released this solo debut in 1978 while he was still a member of the Bothy Band. Thus when the Bothies split up for good the following year, the shock of the blow was lessened by the knowledge that former members of the band would still make music like this. Burke's unassailable technique and musicality allowed him to introduce modern arrangements and recording techniques to the conservative Irish fiddle world with barely a murmur of protest. Burke's fiddling on If the Cap Fits continues to inspire musicians. Indeed, his versions of dance tunes have become standards in Irish sessions around the world. --Michael Simmons
