Kevin Carr

For over thirty years dynamic fiddler-piper-storyteller Kevin Carr has honed his craft in smoky Irish pubs, remote cabins in Quebec, and in dance halls across America. He’s played banjo in Latvia, learned to play the bagpipes of a dozen countries and dug deep to find just the right stories to share. His one-man musical theater of the imagination blends folklore, true-life adventure, and the rare, soulful, fiery sounds of fiddle and pipes into a mesmerizing experience.

KC is a soulful and exciting fiddle player, whose style draws from Irish, Quebecois, Appalachian and bagpiping roots. His performances are a mix of stories, fiddle and pipe tunes from traditional sources around the world. The sounds of Galician, Irish, Slovakian, French or Scottish pipes often punctuate his shows.

Kevin has  taught at Festival of American fiddle tunes, Alsadair Fraser’s Sierra fiddle camp, Puget Sound Guitar workshop, Lark Camp and a host of other music camps across the country, and performed in concerts and at dances in Europe, Canada and the USA for thirty years, both solo and with The Hillbillies from Mars ( eclectic trad), Les Tetes de Violon ( quebecois ),  Wake the Dead ( Celtic Grateful Dead), and with Men of Worth’s Celtic Christmas. He also currently plays with the Family Carr, which includes his wife Josie Mendelsohn, and son and daughter, Daniel and Molly Carr.
