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 peoples 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.Their collaboration is a coming together of many years of honing their craft, of digging inside their own emotional selves, of exploring thousands of songs, making connections with them, allowing the voice of a song to speak to them and listening carefully to that voice. Ellen Cranitch - RTE LyricFMBlending Irish and progressive American folk singing styles, Maura OConnell burst onto the trad scene in the 1980s as vocalist with Irish super group De Danann.
