Liz Carroll & John Doyle Grammy nomination
Not sure if anyone was aware, but Liz Carroll and John Doyle had been nominated for a Grammy (big USA music competition) in the category of Best Traditional World Music album for their album "Double Play". Just checked the results and unfortunately they didn’t win. Douga Mansa won for his album Mamadou Diabate. If you go to http://www.grammy.com/nominees and scroll about 2/3 of the way down the page you can see for yourself.
I know I could probably Google this and find my answer, but I was just curious if anyone knew off the top of their heads of any traditional Irish musicians winning a Grammy, or even being nominated in recent memory? Seems like a huge honor either way, but I don’t follow the Grammy awards that closely to know how often ITM finds its way into the awards. Can anyone enlighten me?
