      This is exciting Casey! How about Galway bay/drunken sailer?

      I’ll be anxiously waiting Garret Barry’s and King of the fairies, those are two of my favorites. Thanks for all you do!

        Sounds good, Alan. I know that’s one you requested for Kevin’s last session that didn’t make the cut…perhaps he’ll choose it this time around!

        And I’ve just moved King of the Fairies and Garret Barry’s up to the top of Kevin’s production list.

        Cheers!

      Would love to hear his version of The Humours of Lissadell.

      Glad to hear there are more Kevin recordings coming.

      Keep up the good work.

      As suggested by alanboyce previously, Galway Bay & The Drunken Sailor would be fantastic.

      Personally I would love to hear Kevin’s suggestions and tips on how to speed tunes up once the basic melody has been mastered.

      Thanks all.

      How about Tam Lin? We play this one at Flanagan’s Pub in Grand Rapids, Michigan and I’d love to learn and hear Kevin’s rendering of this fun tune!
      Thanks so much!

      I don’t know whether it is possible because Kevin plays all the tunes solo which is super-beautiful…..but if you could add the chords for guitar/accompaniments that would be awesome because I want to play them with others. Not everyone can play solo fiddle like Kevin does, he is a true master.

      Cheers! – Sylvia

      Hi Casey, Always good to hear that Master Kevin Burke is creating more lessons. I know he already has plenty to choose from so I’m hoping he would like to do Loftus Jones. BTW Site is awesome with added enhancements and new lessons. Thanks, Roland

      Hi Casey,
      I’ve been listening to versions of “Foxhunter’s Slip Jig”, (different to “Foxhunter’s Reel”). It’s a terrific stand-alone session tune, which Kevin played brilliantly when he was a tiny bit younger and I am guessing that it’s one he’d enjoy teaching on to us. I would very much like to pair it up with The Butterfly, which I’ve been learning from Kevin’s tutorial.
      I’m finding that I’m increasingly able to tackle some of the more difficult “Pro Fiddle’s” tutorials, as I begin to reap the rewards of my fiddle music teacher’s lessons. I’ve recently begun tackling some of the more difficult pieces presented by “Pro Fiddle’s” great tutors and look forward to playing them in sessions here in England.

      Big “thank you” from,
      Dan

      I will second the call for more slip jigs :), such as Ride a Mile. Thanks!!

      Thanks for the suggestions, folks. I’ve passed these on to Kevin for consideration.

      Kevin will be in studio shortly, and I’ll post the list of new lessons he recorded here in the forum once we wrap.

      Cheers!

      Really appreciate the help with the slip jigs. If others are interested as well I think a tutorial on hardiman the fiddler would be helpful! Something about it trips me up. Thank you!

        Hi, Bre. You’re welcome for the slip jigs! We’ll add Hardiman the Fiddler to Kevin’s running request list…he may choose to record a lesson on that tune.

        Rumor has it that Kevin may be back in our studios for his 7th recording session in late August/early September…stay tuned!

        Hi, Armin & Sara!

        Consider these tunes added to the running list…Kevin may choose to teach them. Also – just to let you know we haven’t forgotten about your request for O’Carolan’s Concerto & Loftus Jones…those are still in Kevin’s queue for review, so hopefully they will be published soon!
