Two of Ireland’s most outstanding and beloved singers join together to present an exceptional evening of songs and stories. Maura O'Connell and Karan Casey, both known for the depth, beauty and sheer joy in their exploration and interpretation of songs, offer a special tour in 2016-17.
Through this show, A Celebration of Song and Life, Maura O'Connell and Karan Casey explore and share with the audience what it means to be Irish today, a woman today, a world view seen through the broad emotional spectrum of song. Songs make the connection between events and the impact they have on people’s lives - a local happening, a geographical spot, a war or scene of violence, a night of love, a season of loss or grief, the birth of a child, a wedding, a funeral, happiness in the sunshine, the list is long. Mostly though, this is about the sheer enjoyment of singing. The collaboration allows both women a freshness in approach to their now long established solo careers. This is a celebration of song and life.
