I commend NEA for selecting Kevin Doyle to receive our nation's highest honor in the folk and traditional arts. Kevin is an elite artist with a common touch. He makes Irish step dancing look easy, but he is someone who has poured many years of hard work, sweat, and soul into honing his craft. I think it is great that he is being recognized on a national stage and making Rhode Island and our Irish-American community proud.

...[a] powerhouse stepdancer... 'What a great guy he is,' [Brian] O'Donovan [producer of A Christmas Celtic Sojourn] says of Doyle... '...here is a guy who is as fit as a fiddle, literally. He's just unbelievable. He's got an extraordinarily professional approach to the dance, and boy, can he dance!'
— The Providence Journal

... watching him perform with a spring in his step whether it was Irish step dancing or tap dancing, either style convincing you he was 'born to dance.'
