Liz Carroll with Cormac McCarthy
Since she was 18, when she astounded the Celtic music world by winning the Senior All-Ireland Championship, Liz and her fiddle have been amazing audiences around the globe. In recent years, she has been honored with many accolades, including the nomination for a 2010 Grammy, along with John Doyle, for their duet album, "Double Play." And in April of 2011, Liz was awarded the Cumadóir TG4, the first American-born composer honored with Ireland's most significant traditional music prize.
She is joined by up and coming pianist and composer Cormac McCarthy. Cormac McCarthy is a Cork-born composer and pianist who has recently moved to Chicago. He began studying piano aged four and soon after, discovered the joy of composition.
His teenage years saw him develop both disciplines in tandem, studying with Mary Beattie and George Dunne at the Cork School of Music whilst receiving masterclasses from the likes of Philip Martin, Eva Poblocka, Barry Harris, Carola Grindea, Dr. Billy Taylor and Edward Simon.
In 2010 Cormac received the prestigious Bill Whelan International Music Bursary, an award earmarked for young Irish composers studying abroad. As a composer Cormac is looking to explore the synthesis of the different musical styles at his disposal, and create an aesthetic of interest and genuine cultural value.
