The "Offbeat" reviews

★★★★★ "... [a] magnificent collection of original, self-composed tunes. ... a wide arc of a celebration of quirky, non-conformist rhythms, which revel as much in the powder-keg unpredictability of the Balkans as they do in the buoyant agility of the Sligo style."

Siobhan Long, The Irish Times

"Great compositions, top grade musicianship, and a nicely designed sleeve to boot: why wouldn't you want one? "

Alex Monaghan, FolkWorld


"... this is an archetypal Irish musician visiting other musical realms without losing one iota of her rootedness and unique musical voice. It is a joy and gift."

Kevin Carr, FolkWorks

"...
this is timeless Carroll. Magical, multi-dimensional, inventive and at the peak of her creativity."

Tony Lawless, TradConnect

And Liz's long-time musical pal, Jimmy Keane, chimes in, too! "I am still amazed and in awe of her musicality, technical ability, and her innate 'turn of a note' in tune composition. 'On the Offbeat' further enhances all three of the above 'inspirations' to me."

"She may write and play beautifully about such eclectic topics as fishing, bar hopping, and yellow pantsuits. She may dream of fiddle heaven, fighting with grapefruits, and putting tinsel on the tree. Carroll’s fiddle transcends our verbal descriptions of ordinary visions and daily delusions into something more magical by asking us to notice the beauty of it all through her music."

Steve Horowitz, PopMatters

"... here she is truly front and center, and her power, control, plus her sheer ability to wring seemingly every possible tone and emotion from her instrument, are at full deployment... for Carroll, there are no boundaries..."

Sean Smith, Boston Irish Reporter

"... a disc of superlative music that features some wonderful original tunes, a bunch of incredible co-conspirators and some top class fiddle playing from one of the best."

Female Musician of the Year, Irish American News: Liz Carroll
The Livies, Female Instrumental Album of the Year, liveIreland.com: On the Offbeat
"You know Liz Carroll has to win this. Our Chicago musical heroine has produced another stunner, this time entitled On the Offbeat. When any musician has been as excellent as long as Liz Carroll has, you can only wonder how much longer she can continue at this level. Apparently, the answer for this fiddle genius is forever."
Bill Margeson, Irish American News and liveIreland.com 

 
"... it is certainly one of the best albums of the decade so far."

Eileen McCabe, Irish Music Magazine

 
"Talented and dedicated musicians find their own ways of putting their stamp on the musical traditions they inherit, and Carroll does so in both her playing and her composing... I hear the melodies loud and clear and love what they say..."

"... the tunes sparkle with life, winding and wending around the most unexpected and surprising corners. This is the kind of album only a true master can make..."
