Friday, October 19, 2012: Kevin Burke and Dáithí Sproule.
Doors open 7:00pm, concert at 7:30pm
Location: Milwaukee Irish Fest Center; 1532 N. Wauwatosa Ave., Milwaukee WI
As a special event of The Session! Conference, fiddler Kevin Burke and singer/guitarist Dáithí Sproule will perform together in concert, collaborating and revisiting the music Kevin recorded with Micheal O Domhnaill on two of the finest duo albums in Irish music: Promenade (1979) and Portland (1982). Earl Hitchner of the Irish Echo describes O Domhnaill and Burke’s sound as “unrushed, detailed, spellbindingly beautiful, yet still pulsing with vitality.” Sproule and O Domhnaill performed together in Skara Brae, each developing their guitar style and approach to Irish and English language songs.
