recordings

Many of my recordings are available to listen to and download right here.

Sevens/Glass Island Reel: two flutes, piano accordion, Garageband loops. Sevens, a contemporary Liz Carroll original from her 2000 album Lost In the Loop. Glass Island, a contra tune by Ethan Hazzard-Watkins. They are joined here by a batter of modern beats and old world piano accordion. See original post.  Download.

Palm Sunday: flute, accordion, Garageband loops, palm banging on Ikea bookshelf.  A traditional double jig in 6/8 followed by  a “reel-ified” 3/4 version of itself.  Perhaps think of it more as a reel with 6 subdivisions per strong beat. See original post.  Download.

If you would like to hear more of this album and can’t afford any of these options, please email me and we will work something out on a sliding scale, barter, or free.  However you manage to get a hold of my recordings, I encourage you to lend, burn, import, trade, and share them with people in your life.

Do contact me if you wish to record your own versions of my songs, as they are copyrighted works.  And hey, let me know if you’re going to perform any of them, mostly because I’d just find that darn interesting.  And maybe I can come hear you play.
