Kevin Carr (fiddle, uilleann pipes, Galician bagpipes)

Kevin is highly respected in the U.S. and Canada as a dance fiddler and Irish piper. He is best known for his work with the cult contradance and concert band The Hillbillies From Mars, though in recent decades he has been spending considerable time in Spain studying Galician bagpipes. In addition to forty years of experience with Irish music, his wide ranging musical interests include Québécois, Basque and French music. He often teaches at music camps and workshops across the country, and is a renowned story-teller (with a series of great story-filled CDs).
