Kevin Crawford playing the bodhrán

Kevin Crawford (born 6 December 1967, Birmingham, England) is a flute,[1] tin whistle and bodhrán player.[2] He was born in England to Irish emigrant parents from Milltown Malbay, County Clare. He later moved to West Clare to improve his music and become more exposed to traditional Irish music.


Is a massive lad. He started in the late 1980s with Long Acre working with artists such as Mick Conneely, Brendan Boyle, Bernadette Davis, Joe Molloy and Ivan Miletitch. After recording and co-producing what he described[citation needed] as his most "traditional" CD with "Grianán," a group including Siobhán and Tommy Peoples, Niamh De Burca, P.J. King, Martin Murray, Paul McSherry, John Maloney, and Pat Marsh (released in 1993), Crawford joined "Moving Cloud" in 1993 and then "Lúnasa" in 1997, replacing Michael McGoldrick. Crawford became the "frontman" for Lúnasa during their live performances.
