Agus í anois ar dhuine le de hamhránaithe is iomráití
i saol an cheoil thraidisiúnta tá clú bainte amach
ag Karan Casey ar fud an domhain. Tá muid iontach
sásta go mbeidh sí ar ais anseo in An Droichead le
linn Féile An Droichead.
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 tonight's performance Karan will be joined by
Niall Vallely, Caoimhín Vallely and Robbie Overson.
