Barrelhouse is singer/songwriter/guitarist Kevin Burke, based on Long Island, New York. A longtime veteran of the local music scene, he became interested in finger-style acoustic blues while on a road trip through Nashville, Memphis, and Mississippi, and changed his guitar style to capture the feeling he found there. His music is a unique blend of blues, country, and bluegrass, played on various guitars, in various tunings.

"This is a good blues guitar workout with vocals. Long Island, New York’s Kevin Burke can play up a storm and keeps you on full alert during this album, even when he slows it down a bit. Barrelhouse is an appropriate name and is well worth a visit." - David Hintz, FolkWorld
 

"The brilliant fingerpicking and slide work ... are no less than impressive. [Burke] is a brilliant guitarist ... that enthusiasts ... absolutely have to discover."- Luc Meert, Rootstime.be


My CD, "Feels Like Home," is now available!


 

The CD is also available for download at iTunes and Amazon.com. If you like what you hear, I'd appreciate it if would leave a review on one of those sites. Thanks!
