In the rich and fertile world of Celtic music, three names stand out at the very pinnacle of the genre. Playing under the name Trian, fiddler Liz Carroll, accordionist Billy McComiskey, and guitarist/singer Dáithí Sproule already established their legendary status with their first album. Trian 11 is their Green Linnet debut. It is captivating, intricately played, and uplifting. Sproule (also a member of Altan) is at the top of his form, delivering four great songs (one in Irish) and accompanying his bandmates on guitar with all the subtleties and shadings for which he is known and imitated. Carroll and McComiskey, both as soloists and together, are without equal as players and tunesmiths. Special guest Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill joins them on keyboards and bodhrán. There is no better trio in Celtic music than Trian.
