I was fortunate, tonight, to be able to attend two different classes... Steel Pan and Latin Percussion.. as they ran back to back. Both classes were small in size, allowing for individual instruction, and participants were all of similar skill level to my own (novice or near novice.) I felt welcome and comfortable and am looking forward to next week! (NOT looking forward to recitals!)
In 2014, Kevin Doyle received a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, the highest award available in folk arts.

A lifelong dancer, Kevin has a degree in Tap Dance from the famous Theresa Landry School of Dance. He was a U.S. Champion Irish step dancer in his early competitive years, and has been entertaining audiences ever since with his traditional style of “close to the ground” rhythms and intricate foot work.
