Celebrated Irish singer Karan Casey will perform in the Dogwood Black Box on Friday, March 17 at 7:30 p.m. Casey has long been one of the most innovative, provocative and imitated voices in Irish traditional and folk music.
Her career has spanned twenty five 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 established solo career and she has sold over half a million albums.
Casey has toured constantly throughout North America, Europe and Japan, performing solo, with her own band and with many other artists, often from outside the realm of Irish music. Her adventurous spirit results from the varied influences--classical music, jazz, and American pop that Casey has made her own since growing up amid Irish traditional music in Ballyduff Lower, County Waterford.
Karan Casey, says the Associated Press, has "a voice so beautiful, it's almost impossible to avoid falling under her spell." She comes to the Dogwood Center as part of a 13 date U.S. tour with a recent album, "Nine Apples of Gold."
Tickets are $20.00 and are available through the Dogwood Center Box Office, NCCA-Artsplace in downtown Fremont, on-line at www.dogwoodcenter.com or make it easy and click here. For information, phone 231.924.8885. The Dogwood Center is located one mile east of downtown Fremont.
