    Toner Quinn speaks to renowned fiddle-player Kevin Burke about his music and recordings and his work with groups such as the Bothy Band and Celtic Fiddle Festival.

In this interview, editor Toner Quinn asks Kevin about learning music in South London, moving to Ireland in the 1970s to play with Christy Moore, joining the Bothy Band, his work with Ó Domhnaill, Patrick Street and the Celtic Fiddle Festival, and his thoughts on teaching Irish traditional fiddle.
