ComhaltasLive #211 - 1: Aidan Burke

Composer and fiddle player Aidan Burke from West London Comhaltas plays three reels which he composed, called “Feel the bow,”, “Thanks to Gavin” and “Burke’s”. He continues into a jig version of the old reel “Jenny’s Chickens” and concludes with his own interpretation of that reel.

Aidan plays a fiddle made by his father John, featured in the next item, who with his wife, the late Joan Burke, has achieved so much in promoting Comhaltas and traditional Irish music and culture in the London region over the last five decades.
