Music is Yvonne Casey’s life. From Corofin, Co. Clare, Yvonne grew up surrounded by the richness of Clare music, which she plays in a unique soulful style. Sitting in sessions from a very young age, she discovered the joys of seasoning in Doolin as a teenager, where she met and played with Kevin Griffin and Eoin O’ Neill. In the 1990’s she helped form the band The Ceili Bandits, and they recorded two CDs and toured Europe and the U.S. Yvonne recorded a beautiful solo CD in 2004 which included some of her own compositions.
Although her first love is for traditional music, she has also played and toured with trad-rock band Bushplant and singer songwriter Luka Bloom. Since then Yvonne has created her own music school in Clare while also being invited to play and teach at various festivals at home and abroad. Her recent collaboration with accordion genius Dermot Byrne is charming audiences everywhere with their fresh new sound. Yvonne is currently recording a new album of mostly her own compositions to be released in 2018. A special treat in store for all music lovers!
