The Casey Sisters together on stage

‘A very special night’ is somewhat of a cliche when it comes to entertainment but it certainly fits with the coming together of the three Casey sisters from West Cork (Máire, Nollaig and Mairéad).

The girls are undertaking a national tour which takes in The Village Arts Centre in Kilworth on Sunday, October 8.

The show, ‘Sibling Revelry’ is based on the title of their recently released album and while one of the sisters (Máire) has played the Kilworth venue on a few occasions in the past, it will be the first time for Nollaig and Mairéad.

The girls grew up in Bandon in West Cork and have been itching for along time to collaborate on record. Last year, the project was realised and Nollaig, who is one of Ireland’s most accomplished fiddle players said the wait was well worth it, and the resulting ‘Sibling Revelry’ was received to critical acclaim.

Maire who classed as one of the world’s best harp players, has played the Kilworth venue on a number of occasions in the past along with her guitar-playing husband, Chris Newman and she is looking forward to introducing her sisters to the Kilworth audience.

Youngest sister Máiréad is a teacher in Bandon and passes on her love of the music to her many students.

She recalls attending The Pipers’ Club in Cork with her older sisters when they were in their early teens and claims it was the first time they would have met a lot of other people who were really interested in Irish music.
