More About CES presents the 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.
$15 adult; $13.50 FSU faculty/staff, military, youth under 18; FSU students FREE
