Legendary nine-time all-Ireland fiddle champion Eileen Ivers respectfully explores the traditions and progression of Celtic music. Joined on stage by the band Immigrant Soul, Ivers blends her fiddling with instruments from around the world including the accordion, Bouzouki, congas and harmonica. The original star of Riverdance, she is hailed as one of the great innovators and pioneers in the Celtic and World Music genres. Called the “Jimmy Hendrix of the violin” by The New York Times, Grammy Award-winner Eileen Ivers will change how you think about the violin!
