ComhaltasLive #209 - 4: John and Carmel Burke

Button accordion and fiddle players Carmel and John Burke have played a major role in the promotion of traditional music in Britain over the years. They play a selection of tunes commencing with “O’Kane’s Hornpipe” and continue with a selection of reels which ends with “The Killavil Fancy”. “O’Kanes Hornpipe” is this week’s Tutorial.

Recorded at the West London 50th Anniversary concert, MC Oliver Mulligan pays a short tribute to John’s mother, the late Joan Burke, for her extraordinary work in promoting Irish music over the decades.
