Half Day Road

The Half Day Road reviews are here and here are some highlights!

"It’s like some magnificent sunset at the end of an immensely satisfying day."

"This is a gem of an album with many great tunes which will undoubtedly last the test of time and will propagate themselves throughout the tradition. If you're a fiddle fan, buy it – you won't regret it!"

“But the thing that’s most striking about this album is the sheer virtuosity of the musicianship... It’s just breathtaking.”

"What is astonishing is the fact that Carroll's songwriting and playing continue to improve. Her latest recording, Half Day Road, a collaboration with Canadian pianist/guitarist Jake Charron, shows her at the peak of her talents."

"a musical masterpiece that will find us listening to, being in awe of, and replaying for years to come... Half Day Road is special; it is a treasure."

"... stunningly well played... This CD is definitely a candidate for my 2019 Top Ten."
- 12/28/2019 announcement, "Alex Monaghan's Traditional Top Ten 2019"
