A legend in her own right, Karan Casey has long been one of the most innovative provocative and imitated voices in Irish Traditional and Folk music. Her career has spanned twenty years; from the early days as a jazz performer in George’s Bistro in Dublin,
to her heady days in New York with the band Solas, to her now blossoming solo career, she has sold over half a million albums. Karan released her first album with the group Solas, which quickly became the most celebrated Irish band in the U.S. and her four
years with the group were pivotal. Following their ground breaking early releases Casey struck out on her own. Since embarking on her solo career Karan has released five solo albums as well as an album for children and numerous contributions to other artist’s projects. She has toured constantly throughout North America, Europe and Japan, performing with her own band as well as with such diverse musicians as Tim O’Brien, Karan Matheson (Capercaille) the Michael McGoldrick Band and Lúnasa.
For this performance Karan will be joined by Niall Vallely, Caoimhín Vallely and Robbie Overson
