Description

Oíche scéalta agus cheoil le Caoimhín de Búrca. Bhí tionchar mór ag stíl Shligigh Michael Coleman, Paddy Killoran agus James Morrison ar stíl sheinnte fidle Chaoimhín de Búrca. Mhaígh de Búrca gur bhain “buntáistí an dá thrá” léi agus meascán inti de stíl Thír Chonaill agus liriciúlacht shéimh Chontae an Chláir.

Ní bhfaighfeá fidléireacht aonarach níos fearr ná seo! Ón seanfhonn Loftus Jones de chuid Uí Chearbhallaín, go dtí an píosa clasaiceach ó Cheanada,Mouth of the Tobique, léiríonn Caoimhín de Búrca leathdhosaen stíleanna ar leith, agus é ar bharr a réime ag dul do ghach ceann acu. Téann uair an chloig thart i bhfaiteadh na súl i gcuideachta an fhir agus a fhidle, agus a scéalta faisnéiseacha agus a acmhainn shéimh ghrinn. Seinneann sé in ómós do na ceoltóirí ar fhoghlaim sé uathu i Londain, amhail Bobby Casey agus Lucy Farr, chomh maith leis na ceoltóirí ar sheinn sé leo lena n-áirítear Micheál Ó Domhnaill agus Johnny Cunningham. Le linn an tseó, tugann sé léirithe iontacha d’fhoinn Ghaelacha, idir shean agus nua: The Sailor on the Rock, The Morning Dew, The Maids of Mitchelstown, The Tolka Polka, Páidín O'Rafferty'sagus a phort féin Across the Black River.



Burke's fiddle playing style was heavily influenced by the Sligo style playing of Michael Coleman, Paddy Killoran, and James Morrison. Burke described the style as being "the best of both worlds"—combining the driving rhythm of Donegal style and the smooth lyricism of Clare style.

Solo fiddle really doesn't come much better than this. From the grand old Carolan air Loftus Jones to the Canadian classic Mouth of the Tobique, Kevin Burke treats us to at least half a dozen different styles and excels at every one. An hour passes easily with one man and his fiddle, informative stories and gentle humour, paying homage to the musicians he learnt from in London, the likes of Bobby Casey and Lucy Farr, and the musicians he played with such as Micheál Ó Domhnaill and Johnny Cunningham. Along the way he gives great performances of classic and contemporary Irish tunes: The Sailor on the Rock, The Morning Dew, The Maids of Mitchelstown, The Tolka Polka.
