“[Aoife O’Donovan] A splendid, folksy singer whose voice soars” – Time Out New York

“Setting her clear voice in arrangements that mix traditional and modern instruments, [Karan Casey] maintains the taut, quivering ornamentation of old ballad style, singing tales of love, war and murder with a gentle gravity.” – The New York Times

Our seventh installment of the acclaimed Masters in Collaboration series pairs award-winning Irish traditional musician Karan Casey with vocalist and American singer and songwriter Aoife O’Donovan. Casey, an innovative and provocative voice in Irish traditional music, has a career that spans twenty years, starting as a jazz performer in Dublin, later making waves in New York with the band Solas, and now has a blossoming solo career. O’Donovan is renowned for her ability to breathe magic into anything she sings; she’s toured internationally, performed with the Boston Pops and the Utah Symphony Orchestra, and has appeared on countless radio and television programs. Casey and O’Donovan will spend a week making music together and further developing their creative partnership as IAC artists-in-residence. Audiences will be welcomed into the experience for an exclusive midweek conversation as well as three performances in the intimate Donaghy Theatre.

Don’t miss your chance to be a part of musical history with these living legends of Irish traditional music.

Launched by Irish Arts Center senior artistic associate Mick Moloney in 2008, the Masters in Collaboration series creates partnerships among artists outside the pressures of the marketplace in an effort to stimulate creativity, reward risk, and awaken a dynamic musical conversation between Ireland and the United States. Past performances within the series have paired Paul Brady with Sarah Siskind, Andy Irvine with John Doyle, Bill Whelan with Athena Tergis, Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill with Gregory Harrington, Iarla Ó Lionáird with Ivan Goff, and Seamus Begley with Joanie Madden.
