Irish Fiddle

Liz Carroll is an Irish fiddler, composer, and recording artist. She is the first Irish-American musician to be nominated for a Grammy, and the first American-born composer honored with the Cumadóir TG4, Ireland’s most significant traditional music prize. Liz has toured as a solo artist and with the Greenfields of America, Trian, as the duo Liz Carroll & John Doyle, and with String Sisters – whose new album, Between Wind and Water, was just released. She is featured on thirteen albums and has appeared on many more, and her next album arrives this fall. Liz was born in Chicago of Irish parents, and still lives just outside her hometown.
