Review

Probably the best and most original young guitar player in Britain today --Acoustic Guitar

Truly a guitarist for all seasons, Carroll is up there with his peers such as John Renbourn and Tommy Emmanuel. Inspirations run from newgrass and fusion jazz to Irish stylings, all cleanly arranged and immaculately interpreted. --Roots Magazine

...a milestone on the journey of the steel-string guitar --John Renbourn

Product Description

Clive Carroll is probably the best and most original young acoustic guitar player and composer in Britain. Clive has been immersed in music since birth. His mother, Jean, born in Clonlara in County Clare, Ireland, plays button accordion; his sister, Becky, plays the guitar and sings; and his father, Mike, also of Irish descent, makes and repairs musical instruments and plays banjo and bodhran. The level of musicality that Clive displays is truly astonishing, one not automatically present in even the most skilled of professional guitarists. Stylistically, Clive s compositions rove eclectically and brilliantly through and across genre boundaries. Clive s composition Aerial Discoveries is an homage to Michael Hedges. With his use of two-handed tapping, Michael broke down musical barriers. Carroll says, allowing a refreshing new range of homophonic and polyphonic textures to evolve. Carroll s Farewell is a lyrical creation directly inspired by Clive s Irish upbringing. This composition display Clive s superb sense of rhythm, external and internal, and his unerring feel for pace, knowing just when and how to let the music breathe Most of Carroll s compositions are in standard tuning. Snake Bite Boogie, which he wrote for one of his students is particularly tricky. Roger s got this extraordinary ability to learn everything I give him from memory by the next lesson, Clive says. So one week, feeling a bit evil, I gave him this and said, Right then Roger, see you next week! Young Clive is quiet spoken, gets on well with his parents, dresses sensibly, drives within the speed limit, and has no desire to be a star, but you re likely to be hearing a great deal more of him in the future. Tunes include: The Kildimo Set, Promise Of Spring, Snake Bite Boogie, Carroll s Farewell (For Chris Berry), Aerial Discoveries, Asturias, J. Dowland Medley: Preludium / The Frog Galliard, Canco Del Lladre (Catalan Folk Song), Black Nile, Angels Of Light, One, Loch Nagcaor, Castle Combe, Traditional Set, Jiffi Jam and Clonlara Running Time: 72mins

5.0 out of 5 stars The master of the guitar! November 9, 2007
By Andy H.
Format:DVD
Clive plays that one guitar, and somehow makes it sound like 4 or 5 at the same time! He is a friendly entertainer and loves to tell his audience his funny stories of his various and numerous gigs around the world. But the guitar playing is amazing...Clive writes the most incredible pieces of music, yes, properly composes the music for real, and has any audience spellbound. If you get the chance, go and see him play, you will be very pleased you did, and you'll be hooked on those tunes!

Clive Carroll is fantastic, and this DVD captures him in concert. He should be much better known than he is!
