She's a junior and senior All-Ireland Fiddle Champion, and has toured as a solo artist and with the Greenfields of America, Trian, String Sisters, and as part of the duo Liz Carroll & John Doyle. She's featured on eleven albums and has appeared on many more. Liz is a recipient of the National Heritage Fellowship Award (1994). In 2010 she became the first Irish-American musician nominated for a Grammy. In 2011 she became the first American-born composer honored with the Cumadóir TG4, Ireland's most significant traditional music prize.
Liz's most recent recording project is titled, "Who Do We Say We Are?" As part of Ireland's 2022 Centenary celebration at Trinity's Long Room Hub and at the Snite Museum at Notre Dame, Liz composed music inspired by art that appeared at the 1922 Paris Exposition d'Art.
