Kevin Burke's Open House - Hoof and Mouth
Open House is an acoustic world music phenomenon. Drawing from the diversity of its musicians, the group takes full advantage of its varied instrumentation. Legendary fiddler Kevin Burke slips easily among jigs, reels, bourr‚àö¬©es, and polkas, while Mark Graham's clarinet adds a decidedly old world quality and his harmonica a country feel to the ensemble. Citternish Paul Kotapish contributes his distinctive original tunes, and unique rhythms are provided by Sandy Silva's driving percussive dance. Finally, the group's sophisticated repertoire is hilariously complemented by the infectious, tongue-in-cheek songwriting of Mark Graham.
