The shy teenager blagged his way backstage at a Chris Rea gig in Belfast to talk to his guitar hero. Rea advised the young novice, who took everything on board. Three years later Casey gave Rea a demo tape. He was impressed, and invited Paul to London. Thus began years of recording and touring together, and a friendship that endures to this day.

For decades, the self-effacing musician has worked tirelessly at his craft. The studio is where he’s at home. The quintessential musician’s musician, over the years Casey has earnestly composed and arranged, played and recorded, mixed and produced – all the time honing his craft at his Cable Junction home studio.

All this work has paid off as the Derry man prepares himself to play at the astonishing acoustic stage of Glastonbury. On Saturday June 29, festival-goers will be treated to a rare appearance by the full Paul Casey Band. Wherever they take to the stage, audiences react.
