Karan Casey Band
Monday, March 3, 2014 - 8:00pm
Two More Hours is Karan Casey’s first entirely self-penned album. Contemporary in tone it takes a much more personal approach to her writing and singing. It features a duet with Irish chart-topper Mick Flannery as well as contributions from Abigail Washburn and Aoife O’Donovan and was produced by Niall Vallely. A departure from the traditional music she has focused on for many years Two More Hours draws on Karan’s life-long love of R&B, Jazz and Blues in creating a vibrant new mix of sounds. Vallely’s string arrangements help meld together a stellar cast of Ireland’s finest musicians from the worlds of Classical, Folk and Rock music including Ken Rice, Kate Ellis, Sean Og Graham, Trevor Hutchinson, Eoghan Regan, Danny Byrt and Caoimhín Vallely.
“While I have always done some writing I have never spent so much time just writing. This period in my life just happened to coincide with my mother Anne's death. In many ways this album is about the process of moving through grief, eventually standing up and viewing all around you, shaking yourself down or not, and enjoying life while we have it. www.karancasey.com
