 Raheen House Hotel Clonmel

Karan has recorded six solo albums and sold over half a million records. She has won Best Irish Female Vocalist twice and Best Irish Folk album.

Karan has been nominated for the BBC Folk Awards and has performed with Peggy Seeger, Liam Clancy, James Taylor, and Imelda May. The new Album “Two More Hours” includes guest appearances by singers Mick Flannery, Abigail Washburn and Aoife O’Donovan draws on Karan’s life-long love of R&B, Jazz and Blues and creates a vibrant new mix of sounds .

Karan’s fellow band members for this gig will be Trevor Hutchinson (ex Paperboys and Sharon Shannon band) on Double Bass and Eoghan Regan on Guitar
 
 "The most soulful singer to emerge in Irish traditional music in the past decade." 
- The Glasgow Herald
 
“….the Irish equivalent of Emmylou Harris.”
WASHINGTON POST
 
”Casey’s voice is among the loveliest in folk music and she’s a wonderful interpreter of both contemporary and traditional material.”
BOSTON GLOBE
 
“Setting her clear voice in arrangements that mix traditional and modern instruments, she maintains the taut, quivering ornamentation of old ballad style, singing tales of love, war and murder with a gentle gravity.”
NEW YORK TIMES
 
“Casey has the unique ability to make every song sound true and impassioned.”
GLOBAL RHYTHM



Doors for the gig will open at 8pm.
There will be no support act, and the band will start at 9pm prompt..

De Temps Antan (Quebec, Canada)


 Raheen House Hotel Clonmel


Thursday 30th Oct  2014  








Andrè Brunet, Pierre-Luc Dupuis and Èric Beaudry are The Big Three of the French Quebecois traditional music scene.

De Temps Antan have been thrilling audiences with a dynamic delivery of classic tunes and songs, as well as original compositions, thanks to the infectious nature of the music, their boundless energy and unmistakable Quebecois joie de vivre. Powered by Brunet’s ace fiddling, Beaudry’s powerhouse rhythm guitar and clogging feet, and Dupuis’ punchy accordion, this is hard-driving acoustic music, truly great  “World Music”. This is a hugely-impressive multi-instrumentalist group and all 3 were members of the famous band La Bottine Souriante

“Explosive” – fRoots magazine

“Real classy – a delight!(*****)” – R2 (Rock ‘n’ Reel magazine)

This is a rare opportunity to see this fantastic band in Tipperary, one you won’t want to miss.

Chatham County Line (North Carolina USA)
Special Guests Mandolin Orange 


 Raheen House Hotel Clonmel


Thursday 20th Nov  2014  






The Raleigh, North Carolina Bluegrass Legends  make their first visit to Clonmel,  which is one of only 2 Irish gigs on a European Tour promoting  their new Album. Dynamic and captivating, Chatham County Line are equally capable of classically hard-driving bluegrass and sparse, haunting ballads. The key to their sound lays in the close collaboration of the band's four members – Dave Wilson (guitar), John Teer (mandolin, fiddle), Chandler Hold (banjo), and Greg Readling (stand up bass) who have been together for 10 years and have released 7 Albums.

Chatham County Line have an ongoing commitment to classic stringband instrumentation, While their acoustic lineup informs their performances, it places no limitations on the band’s formidable songwriting talent.

This is a band we have been after for 5 years, we can’t recommend them highly enough.

Special Guests on the tour will be Mandolin Orange, a great duo who combine Folk, Bluegrass and Pop, playing electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin and fiddle.
