March 21. Considered one of the top Irish fiddlers of our time, Kevin Burke is a virtuoso of the Sligo fiddling style who made his name as a sideman to the great Christy Moore and as a member of the legendary Bothy Band. In 1979, Burke and his fellow former Bothy Band mate guitarist Micheal O' Domhnaill immigrated to Oregon and began a successful run as a duo, before O' Domhnaill left to form Nightnoise. Awarded the National Endowment for the Arts' prestigious National Heritage Fellowship in 2002, Burke will astonish and astound at this event presented by Studio Red Hook at Saint Paul's Hall in an evening that also features guest dancing by New York company Solas An Lae. Sure it's a little after Saint Patrick's Day, but why let the party end? 8pm. $27. Red Hook. (845) 802-6515;

  • CD Review: Zs' "XE"

    Higgins and current fellow Zs Sam Hillmer (sax and pedals) and Greg Fox (percussion and electronics) are nothing short of poets of noise. Even in the most assaultive moments on Zs' new record, XE, a sense of delicacy, separation, and emotive purpose prevails.
