Item Description

Lost in the Loop is a tour de force of musicianship and spirit, a celebration of the Irish fiddle tradition and its possibilities. Liz Carroll is clearly at the top of her game, and reveling in it. Her tone is sweet, round, assured and even sassy. Irish American producer Seamus Egan of Solas, has brought along some of his bandmates - guitarist John Doyle and fiddler Winifred Horan - and with Egan on percussion and flute, they fuel the album with the same electricity they bring to Solas. With other celebrated guests like Altan’s Daithi Sproule, Liz Carroll’s Lost in the Loop will thrill new fans and longtime admirers.

At age 18, Chicago fiddler Liz Carroll beat Ireland’s best by winning the All-Ireland Championship. Her quicksilver playing caught critics’ ears - "Nothing less than breathtaking!" raved The Irish Echo. She went on to help found Irish-American bands Cherish the Ladies and Green Fields of America. In 1984 she won the National Heritage Award, and Chicago Mayor Daley named September 18 "Liz Carroll Day" in her honor. Today, Liz is revered as one of Irish America’s premiere musicians by fans, critics and, especially, by other musicians.
