CASEY NEILL AND JOHNNY B CONNELLY

It’s been 15 years since Casey Neill and Johnny B. Connolly embarked on a cross country US tour.  Fast forward to 2018 and they are together again with songs and instrumentals from the Scots/Irish and American traditions as well as a selection of originals.  Johnny Connolly was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland where his dexterity on the accordion earned him a place with the established Celtic ensemble, Anam, at the age of seventeen. For the past few years, Johnny has been touring as a member of internationally acclaimed Irish band Solas and is featured on their latest CD ‘All These Years’. Casey Neill is a songwriter and guitarist who tours extensively in the US, Japan, and Europe. He performs solo and with his band The Norway Rats, as well as being a member of indie rock super group The Minus 5. Neill has a long history in the traditional folk world having worked with masters of Scots/Irish music such as Kevin Burke, Johnny Cunningham, and Martin Hayes. SUNDAY
