Torch and Fire
Torch and Fire is Dan Beimborn's second CD. The disk features instrumental American and Irish music played on mandolin, with a rich variety of musical partnerships and fine old instruments. The recording was originally inspired by a Loar F5 mandolin that appears on the majority of the tracks on this CD.
Guest artists include Tim O'Brien (fiddle, mandolin, 5-string banjo), Mike Bub (Bass), Kevin Macleod (mandolins, tenor guitar), Craig Harbauer (mandolins), Mark Conyard (mandolin, tenor banjo), Chipper Thompson (guitar), and Zan McLeod (guitar, bouzouki) in a variety of arrangements ranging from American Old-Timey and bluegrass through spirited settings of Irish jigs & reels.
Also Available: Shatter the Calm
Please also take a look at my other CD realeased in 2002, Shatter the Calm. Shatter the Calm has more emphasis on my 10-string cittern or Irish bozouki, used as the main melody instrument on the CD. It also features contributions from Paul Kotapish and Zan MvLeod, as well as a few of my own compositions.
Both of my CDs are available through Elderly Instruments
