Kevin Burke and Cal Scott will perform at the Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club on Saturday May 19th at 8pm - their only appearance in the northern NJ/NYC area.   Located in the Central Unitarian Church at 156 Forest Avenue in Paramus, NJ (just 15 minutes from NYC!), this concert will be performed in our 100 seat assembly room and promises to be a memorable evening of music!

Kevin Burke and his highly fluid and ornamented Sligo-style of fiddle is easily one of the most recognizable talents in Irish music today. From his early days with the ground-breaking and now legendary Bothy Band in the mid-70s to his tours with the Irish supergroup Patrick Street and the Celtic Fiddle Festival, Kevin Burke is widely respected as both an ensemble player and a dynamic solo performer.

Multi-instrumentalist Cal Scott has been playing a variety of music for years, everything from folk to jazz, on bass, brass and guitar, to name a few. He has honed that musicianship into a career as a composer, arranger and producer. With extensive film and television scores to his credit as well as his own CDs, Cal brings a seasoned and complementary aesthetic to his accompaniment with Burke. This is a duo of incredible musical depth.

The duo met while Cal was working a score for a documentary on Northern Ireland. Their new CD Across the Black River is a collaboration incorporating their own new compositions, traditional Irish music and even a bluegrass classic. Guest musicians on some of the tracks include Johnny B. Connolly on accordions, Michael McGoldrick on flutes and Phil Baker on double bass.

Following the international acclaim in the 1970s with the Bothy Band and his first solo album If the Cap Fits, Kevin Burke moved to the West Coast in 1980. He continued performing with Bothy Band guitarist and singer Michael O Domhnaill and their Promenade and Portland albums became the classic must-haves for Irish music fans. Kevin formed Patrick Street in 1985 and the group continues to tour worldwide and has released an amazing 9 albums. Even Kevin's own solo recordings, especially In Concert, highlight the commanding presence of his solo fiddle. Kevin Burke has never stopped being a tour de force in Irish traditional music. In 2002, he was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship by the National Endowment for the Arts in a ceremony in Washington, DC for his artistic excellence and contributions to the field. It's this country's top honor for a folk artist and previous honorees have included B.B. King and Doc Watson.

Ron - How likely are there to be tickets available at the door on Saturday? I'm in Manhattan without a car (hence my delay in planning for the concert), and just found out a few minutes ago that a friend in NJ (with a car) wants to go to this. But now it seems too late to mail away for advanced tickets. Do you expect this to sell out, or should we take a chance on it? (Or is there any other way to get or reserve tickets ahead of time?) Thanks for any info.

Zhenya

P.S. My friend and I both play Irish fiddle and we're already confirmed Kevin Burke fans, so this is a serious inquiry!

Give a call to (201) 384-8465. That is our ticket information number. If you get the answering machine, you can leave your name and number and how many tickets you would like. You can reserve seats at that number and they will hold tickets at the door for you. I would suggest getting there at least 1/2 hour in advance to get good seats in the room.

We are hoping for a sellout (100 seats), but the advance has been slow. I know it is going to be a great show!!

Ron, thanks for this information, as I hadn't realized I could reserve tickets by phone. I'll call later or tomorrow to do this. I'll also pass the word on to anyone else I think may be interested. I'm looking forward to it!
