This month’s interview with Waterford singer Karan Casey offers variety from last month’s themed episode, which told the story of the Boston band’s “Trip to Sligo.”
I chat with Irish singer Karan Casey about where Irish songs have been and where they’re going. Karan talks about how learning a song from someone is really about making connections.
Whether you already sing Irish songs or you don't know anything about trad music or dance—this conversation speaks to anybody who’s ever made a deep connection with a mentor or student, or has been challenged to listen more.
There’s plenty of music here, too, from Karan with John Doyle; Frank Harte; the Ceili Bandits; and a poem from Louis de Paor. Music and poetry credits for all episodes at IrishMusicStories.org
