Singing songs charged with a sense of social responsibility in a career spanning over 25 years, Karan Casey has released 11albums to date. Touring extensively throughout North America, Europe and Japan, she has also collaborated with such diverse musicians as James Taylor, Bela Fleck, Boston Pops Orchestra, Liam Clancy, Maura O’Connell, The Chieftains, The Dubliners, Peggy Seeger, Karen Matheson and Tim O’Brien.
This performance celebrates the release of her new album ‘Nine Apples of Gold’. The album is an ode to the natural world featuring the songbirds of Portglenone, the moon, conversations from the grave, returning to the wild, listening for the cuckoo as she sleeps.
