Portraiture And Theater - Blind Daniel The Piper, Crow Street, composed by Liz Carroll by Liz Carroll published on 2016-09-24T02:43:29Z "IRELAND: Crossroads of Art and Design, 1690–1840 - The Music" is an album of music produced and performed by some of Irish music's most renowned musicians. The music was inspired by a collection of fine and decorative art that was part of an exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago between March and June of 2015. Produced by Liz Carroll, Liz Knowles, and Marty Fahey, the album features music of the period, and also newly composed music by Liz Carroll who was inspired by the hundreds of years old music as well as the art from the exhibition itself. All three of the producers play on the album. Fiddlers Liz Carroll and Liz Knowles are heard throughout, and are often leading an ensemble of exemplary musicians. The ensemble also take on solo pieces which honor the tradition of the traveling musicians of the period. These artists include keyboardist Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill, harpist Catriona McKay, uilleann piper Kieran O’Hare, pianist Marty Fahey, and Liz Knowles, too. Guest musicians include Jackie Moran, Trevor Hutchinson, Emer Mayock, Mick O'Brien, and Aoife Ní Bhriain. The album, which had been for sale only via the Art Institute's web site and museum store, is now widely available via CD Baby, Claddagh Records, and OSSIAN USA, and at online stores everywhere.
