Our Song of the Day is ‘Home’ performed by Karan Casey with Aoife O’Donvan on A Prairie Home Companion. The track features on her latest solo album ‘Two More Hours‘.
Two More Hours is an entirely self-penned and very personal album. When she started a kickstarter campaign for the album she told fans “they are songs of love and healing from the inner workings of my mind. In many ways they are a huge step in trusting my own story enough to confide in you the listener. Basically they mean a lot to me.”
Alongside Aoife O’Donovan other guest artists featured including Mick Flannery and Abigail Washburn. It was produced by Niall Vallely. A departure from the traditional music she has focused on for many years Two More Hours draws on Karan’s life-long love of R&B, Jazz and Blues in creating a vibrant new mix of sounds. Vallely’s string arrangements help meld together a stellar cast of Ireland’s finest musicians from the worlds of Classical, Folk and Rock music including Ken Rice, Kate Ellis, Sean Og Graham, Trevor Hutchinson, Eoghan Regan, Danny Byrt and Caoimhín Vallely.
