Kevin Doyle is the recipient of a National Heritage Fellowship in Irish Dance from the National Endowment for the Arts, the highest honor bestowed on a traditional artist in the US.

Born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, Doyle learned his first jigs and reels at the early age of eight from his Roscommon born mother. With more than 50 years of dance under his feet, the tradition has taken him from an Obama White House performance to the prestigious Willie Clancy Summer School in County Clare, Ireland. He was a featured presenter and teacher at the school in 2015 and 2018, a rare encore for an American artist.

With a magical blend of historic national styles, including American tap, Kevin is a dynamic performer, choreographer, teacher, and producer of Roscommon Soles’ Irish Parlor Performing Arts Series. Visit
