Liz Carroll (fiddle) and John Doyle (guitar) just released a new record on Compass Records called Double Play. This is not a review of that record—although I have no doubt that it is absolutely brilliant—but I wanted to get this time-sensitive item posted immediately. For a limited time you can download a free set of tunes on the Compass home page. The Compass Records Free MP3 of the Week is The Chandelier/Anne Lacey’s. Listen here, then visit Compass Records to download your own copy. Slainte!

LISTEN: The Chandelier/Anne Lacey’s (MP3)


From the Compass site:

Double Play picks up where 2005’s In Play, Liz Carroll and John Doyle’s first critically acclaimed album left off.

Demonstrating continued maturity and invention with a selection of new compositions by both Carroll and Doyle, Double Play also features Doyle’s take on a Dick Gaughan song, “A Pound a Week Rise,” which in its original incarnation paid tribute to the miners of Scotland and England who were involved in a 1984 strike. Classic John Doyle material!

The original tunes on the CD range from tributes to Irish musical greats such as The Irish Tradition (Billy McComiskey, Brendan Mulvihill, Andy O’Brien) and Tommy Makem (The Clancey Brothers and Tommy Makem), to more personal tunes, named for influential family members. Many of the sets include tunes by each of the musicians, who have seamlessly brought them together in the way that only like-minded artists at the top of their game can.

On March 17, 2009, Liz Carroll and John Doyle performed for President Barack Obama at the annual St. Patrick’s Day luncheon at the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. The event was hosted by Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and among the guests was the the new Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of Ireland, Mr. Brian Cowen. Previous entertainers at the event have included The Chieftains, Frankie Gavin, The Commitments, and Ronan Tynan.
