McCormack's love of traditional Irish music started after hearing the voice of Luke Kelly from his fathers two Dubliner's cassette tapes in the car. Over the years McCormack collected an extensive repartoire of Irish folk songs from the the singing of the greats such as Kelly, Drew, Moore, Makem and Clancy. Currently touring extensively throughout the United States, McCormack is to start working on his first studio album this coming Spring. Kevin sings and plays guitar, 5-string banjo and bodran and is currently playing most gigs as a duo with Aaron Lowry on guitar and backing vocals.
