Karan Casey To Release Fifth Album Under The Compass Records Group
Published February 15, 2008

Folk innovator Karan Casey has been described by the Calgary Herald as having a voice which is angelic, haunting, and spellbinding. Likewise, the Boston Globe hails her vocals as being "among the loveliest in folk music." Ships in the Forest,

 

Casey's fifth album, is her first album to be released under The Compass Records Group. Featuring songs which remain true to her folk roots such as "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair," as well as Joni Mitchell's 1969 anti-war madrigal anthem, "The Fiddle and the Drum," this latest effort promises to continue Casey's tradition of producing stellar, critically-acclaimed tunes. Casey believes Ships to be her most ambitious album to date: "I think it has taken me all my years as a singer to come to the point of feeling confident enough to tackle the big songs within the traditional repertoire," she said.

 

Casey has toured with greats Peggy Seeger, Liam Clancy, and Iarla Lionird and was involved in Mick Moloney and Paul Wagner's Absolutely Irish film project which will be screened on PBS in 2008. On the horizon are Casey and Seamus Egan's new project, involving Aoife O'Donovan and Lau, and Niall Vallely's "Turas na dTaoiseach/Flight of the Earl's" event, which was premiered in Belfast's Grand Opera House in November 2007 and is to be repeated during 2008 in Louvain, Belgium. Casey will be touring North America throughout February and March.
