This concert is a part of Young Tradition Festival (April 27-May 3), and is one of 5 early evening acoustic concerts (no sound system) at the BCA Center in Burlington.
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. She has toured as a solo artist and with the Greenfields of America, the group Trian, as the duo Liz Carroll & John Doyle, String Sisters, and now as a duo with guitarist and pianist Jake Charron. Featured on fourteen albums and appearing on many more, her duet album with Jake Charron, Half Day Road, was released in February of 2019. She will soon publish a new book of recent compositions following the sold-out success of Collected – Original Irish Tunes in 2010. Liz was born in Chicago, Illinois, of Irish parents, and is proud that she was recently presented with a 2019 Artist Fellowship Award by the State of Illinois in Ethnic and Folk Arts.
