This event is part of the "Songs, Stories, and Social Good" performance series, hosted in cooperation between Cruces Creatives, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Las Cruces, and other local partners. The mission of the performance series is to have each performance both support the arts in Las Cruces (by bringing global performers to the city or by showcasing local talent) and serve a “social good” theme that advances other charitable missions. The social good theme for this event is women's rights.
About the Performers:
Karan Casey has long been recognized as one of the most innovative, provocative and imitated voices in Irish traditional and folk music. Singing songs charged with a sense of social responsibility in a career spanning over 25 years, Karan has released 7 solo albums as well as an album for children, a duet album with John Doyle and numerous contributions to other artists’ projects. She has toured extensively throughout North America, Europe and Japan, performing with her own band as well as collaborating with a diverse roster of renowned musicians.
“Karan Casey’s latest album is revelatory. She’s always been a singer of songs that tell a story and show their muscle … This is a strikingly three-dimensional work that stands the test of intensive and repeated listening … A vivid and dazzling snapshot of Casey invincible, at the height of her powers.” —Siobhan Long, Irish Times
