Carroll was a great inspiration to The Curtain Society from the very first day. His books and music were a major part of the backdrop to which our earliest music was created.
We are very proud to have later been able to share the stage with him to perform some of the music that meant so much to us all these years. The experience was indescribable and has been a personal highlight for all of us.
Jim was an incredible storyteller. You would ask him a simple question like “how’s the book coming” and 45 minutes later, after hearing the most outlandish story with the most unlikely names dropped, you would be no closer to the answer but that wasn’t the point.
We are sad to hear of his passing but we are grateful for the body of work and great moments that he has left us with.
In his own words-
When the city drops into the night, before the darkness is one moment of light. That’s when everything seems clear. The other side seems so near.
