KARAN CASEY TRIO

With a clear, impassioned voice, Karan Casey has long been recognized as one of the most innovative and
provocative musicians in Irish traditional and folk music, singing songs that are suffused with warmth and
charged with a sense of social conscience. The Irish Times enthused that Casey delves “deep beneath the skin
of contemporary songwriting [and] her voice seeks purchase in the cracks and crevices where real life makes
its mark on us.”

Joined by fiddler and vocalist Niamh Dunne and guitarist and accordionist Sean Óg Graham, Casey’s
performance features songs that draw inspiration from personal, historical and political sources while
touching on themes of family, loss, love, the empowerment of women and the Irish revolutionary struggle.
Immediately following the performance, as part of the Offstage Series with WFWM, WFWM Station Director,
Chuck Dicken, will join the artists for a conversation with the audience. Discover the inspiration behind the
trio’s music, their history as professional musicians and how themes from Ireland’s past and present influence
their songwriting.
