Kevin, a flute player, grew up in Birmingham, England to parents from Miltown Malbay, County Clare. He learned his music in Birmingham’s Irish community before moving in 1989 to west Clare, where he recorded with the groups Grianan, Raise the Rafters and Moving Cloud before being called up in 1997 to replace Mike McGoldrick in the group Lúnasa. In addition to playing flute, whistles and bodhrán with the band, Kevin quickly took over the frontman role on stage. In addition to recordings with Lúnasa, Kevin has issued a solo CD, a recording of duets with various fiddlers, collaborations with bandmates Cillian Vallely and Colin Farrell, and a disc with New York fiddler Dylan Foley. He has also toured with Martin Hayes and John Doyle as “The Teetotallers.” Kevin now makes his home in Brooklyn.
