Description

Classic duo recording from Irish instrumental virtuosos Liz Carroll (fiddle) and John Doyle (guitar). In Play is one of those rare duo albums that holds a listener in rapt attention from start to finish. Irish American fiddle master Liz Carroll and Irish guitar powerhouse John Doyle are among the most respected traditional musicians in Irish music today and that fact that their first duo recording is nothing short of brilliant is no surprise. The two have honed their repertoire on the road and on this studio release they captured both the electricity and lyrical nuances of their live show. Liz Carroll: One of the most notable contemporary composers in traditional Irish music, Liz's tunes have been covered by everyone of note in traditional music including Sharon Shannon, Lunasa, Grada and Darol Anger. She was a recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellowship for her contributions to traditional music and is well known through the release of three critically acclaimed solo albums and multiple collaborations. John Doyle: The most powerful rhythm guitarist to emerge in Irish music, John Doyle has played aleading role in the recent renaissance of Irish traditional music. His technical ability and harmonic sensibility have made him a sought after producer and session musician. Since co-founding Solas in the early '90s, he has gone on to tour with Eileen Ivers, Tim O'Brien, Karen Casey, Cathy Ryan, and Alison Brown and has recently produced albums by Sean Doyle and Heidi Talbott.
