Ireland’s King of Blarney, George Casey’s, self-deprecating humor, tempered with his Irish brogue, have won over audiences across the country. Casey’s humor is always in good fun and gets the audience involved. He relates well with his audience and is a good communicator and keen observer of human nature. With his disarming smile and likable personality, he can charm the habit off a nun and put a smile on the face of even the most politically correct person.
Victoria Kenny was literally born into show biz. The daughter of Irish singing legend Tony Kenny and his wife Joan, herself a legendary Irish dancer, and being the granddaughter of stage-school Billie Barry – Vicky couldn’t help but survive in the crazy business of stage performance. Beginning her career at 15 in a theatrical production of A Christmas Carol, Vicky has been on the stage ever since. She performed with both her parents for years, done solo tours, and successful recordings. And now, she’s back with Dad in Tony Kenny’s Irish Celebration!
