Emerald Banjos review ‘Ten years on’


Heaven Is?

Driving thro the snow, wind, hail and rain thro Ireland, snug in our little car listening to superb banjo music from Ian Carmichael playing in his unique style.

This maestro has single handed created a new genre, which may very loosely be described as “Celtic” but which stretches the bounds of skill one would normally expect.

The heart lifts with joy at the beauty of many pieces on his CD Ten Years On.
Who has ever heard triplets and running triples played on a 5-string? Well we have now. Ian’s wonderful lilting style ensures every banjo lover of every musical creed will love this album.

It’s a MUST BUY.
