Dan Beimborn - Torch and Fire

Dan Beimborn - Torch and Fire

Torch and Fire is Dan Beimborn's second CD and follow-up to Shatter The Calm.

The disk features energetic instrumental American and Irish music played on mandolin, with a rich variety of musical partnerships and fine old musical instruments.

The recording was originally inspired by a Lloyd Loar-signed F5 mandolin (76547, the Schultz Loar) 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.
