“Since 2011 Oklahoma City mom-and-pop duo, Casey & Minna have delivered a happy folk & fiddle style with strong rhythms and pretty melodies. Folk tunes from around the world are woven together in surprising arrangements on fiddle and acoustic guitar. The main mix includes Celtic, Cajun, Polkas, Cowboy, Holiday, Oldies, and Original music, along with contemporary pop tunes. Songs played with imagination and improvisation make listening fun. Like Duke Ellington said, “If it sounds good, it is good.”

Casey & Minna are versatile, able to provide music for a mellow background, a festive celebration, or a beautiful ceremony, on stage or strolling, for audiences large and small, young and young at heart.
