Angelina Carberry!

Angelina’s unmistakeable sound is at times dark and earthy, coupled with a weighted deeply grounded rhythm, the momentum, measured, unstoppable.

I'd like to learn Angelina's The Miller of Drone set from the An Traidisiun Beo CD.  However, it sounds to be in an unusual key.  (I have learned several sets from her other CDs, all of which sound…Continue

Hi Rob, Do you have Peter Carberry's "Traditional Irish Music From Co. Longford"? It came out a few years ago and features a lot of Angelina's playing on it, and some great tunes. I particularly like their version of Johnny Cope with both Angelina and Peter playing banjos together.

Anyone know when we can expect another album from Angelina Carberry?

That video can only be opened by people who are on a special list set up by the owner.  If so, there is no other link, but there are plenty of other videos of her out there.  Plus there are some from the class only for the class members.

Hi Mark, I was in that class too -- it was great fun, wasn't it!! I'm still working on the tunes. I couldn't open the video on p. 2 either.

Hi, I just discovered Angelina's group and joined right away. I was very fortunate to have had her as banjo teacher at O'Flaherty 2012. Wow! I just tried to watch the video at the bottom of p.2 and couldn't, because "The video is private." Is there another link to it that anyone is aware of? Thanks!

AC told me that she just started to play triplets on the upstroke on her own.  She teaches the standard downstroke triplet in class.

Thoughts on her up-down-up triplet style?...

I am assuming she is playing a short neck Banjo.

What gives with Angelina lately? The old website her and Martin had seems to have vanished and Martins website hardly acknowleges her. There is no sign of her at the festivals or workshops either....hmmmm, could it be the genius has taken a haitus?

Hi Chris at the right tension, a thin clear head will give clearer and deeper bass than the frosted or renaissance heads, which sound more muffled and muddy to me anyway.

Lucky you Brendan.
I guess the rest of us will just have to make do with the CD!
