Liz Carroll has released a new track from her recent album 'On The Offbeat' and we include it below. We reviewed the album some time back and you can read the review here.
“I'm very happy with the album and there are many great moments I can point to” she says. “I love the opening to Barbra Streisand's Trip to Saginaw. I meant for Win and Natalie to play that riff but they felt the fiddle opening was right unaccompanied; I'm very glad they pushed for that. On the E-B-E Reel, Natalie joining me for the melody and then Win taking it at the key switch, along with Natalie chopping on the second parts - love that. Sean Og's lovely guitar opening for "Jerome Lacey's," Catriona McKay's arrangement for the opening of The Fruit and the Snoot. Seamus Egan thought I should twin-fiddle on Fish On - I'm very glad that happened. Trevor makes ever track. Keith Murphy's guitar at the end of the second part of "Go Ahead, Back Up" - magic. Chico Huff's entrance on the jig on that same track - I loved that. I am very happy with the slow pieces on the album; I can feel really vulnerable on these types of tunes when I'm playing long notes and not doing that much. But I feel that's what those tunes want, so the musical decisions by all the people I just mentioned make those tracks - "Tinsel," "Never Far Away," and "The Ten Acre Waltz."
