Folk and traditional music legend Karan Casey is walking the corridors of her mind, looking for her voice in this brand-new show that’s part song-poem, part music performance. This adventurous piece demonstrates Casey’s brave spirit, constantly challenging herself to find answers to broader societal questions.
For the first time, Karan breaks away from the songs we know to tell her own stories and sing her own songs, whether her voice likes it or not. From airports, van journeys and sessions to grief, motherhood and the unrealistic expectations of a female muse, I Walked into my Head is a moving, darkly humorous and sometimes joyful exploration of the trials and tribulations of life as a singer.
