[F] Kevin Doyle is a master of Irish step dance who learned his first steps from his mother, a native of Roscommon, who taught her children to dance in their Providence home accompanied by her lilted tunes. Kevin's style represents the generations of Irish who made a new home in America…a memory which is reinforced with each kick or pounding step, and his tap-dancing provides the soundtrack to a uniquely American dance story. Irish dance forms, and tap dance, as conveyed by Kevin Doyle are appropriate in schools and other arts and education settings. Classroom presentations, performances for groups of students, and lecture/demonstrations with workshops for students and/or teachers will meet arts GSE's in dance or music.

Kevin also plays percussion with Pendragon and Atwater-Donnelly and is available for drum circles or lessons on the Irish drum, the ' bodhran'.
