Embracing traditions of the past, discovering innovations for the future, multi-instrumentalist Casey Murray is presently forging her unique musical path. New England-based, Casey is a graduate of Berklee College of Music holding a Bachelor of Music degree in Cello Performance and a minor in American Roots Music Studies. During her time at Berklee, she worked with esteemed folk and world musicians Natalie Haas, Bruce Molsky, Darol Anger, and Joe K. Walsh, among others. Casey’s musical passions find roots in many diverse styles including Celtic, Old Time, New England contra, folk, classical, and improvisation.
Currently, Casey spends most of her time on the road with Corner House, a Boston-based folk band playing tunes and songs inspired by Celtic and Old Time traditions.
