Irish-American fiddler Liz Carroll will be performing Monday, January 17th at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Strathclyde Suite.

Carroll’s career now spans more than 30 years, during which time she’s consistently set new standards of traditional artistry, as both a player and composer, most recently on her Grammy-nominated 2009 album with guitarist John Doyle, Double Play, and with the 2010 publication of Collected, a long-awaited compendium featuring 185 of her celebrated tunes.

As with the book, tonight’s program draws on the full range of her recorded output accompanied by the splendid keyboardist Tracey Dares MacNeill, from Cape Breton – solo, duo, and with the bands Trian and String Sisters – in company with Doyle and other longtime associates, including accordionist Billy McComiskey and multi-instrumentalist Seamus Egan.

The scintillating, near-telepathic double act of top tunesmiths Mairearad Green (accordion, bagpipes) and Anna Massie (fiddle, banjo, guitar) make music that’s impish, lyrical and brimming with joie de vivre.
