Come and enjoy an unforgettable evening of music with fiddler extraordinaire Eileen Ivers.
Grammy-winning, Emmy-nominated Eileen Ivers and her energetic, passionate multi-instrumentals quintet deliver an evening of entertaining, intricate and joyful mix of American roots music forged from Celtic roots. Eileen is hailed as one of the great innovators and pioneers in the Celtic and World music genres. Eileen will change the way you think of the violin.
The daughter of Irish immigrants, Eileen Ivers grew up in the culturally diverse neighborhood of the Bronx, New York. Rooted in Irish traditional music since the age of eight, Eileen proceeded to win nine All-Ireland fiddle championships, a tenth on tenor banjo and over 30 championship medals, making her one of the most awarded persons ever to compete in these prestigious competitions.
Eileen and her ensemble headline prestigious performing arts centers, guest star with numerous symphonies, perform at major festivals worldwide, and have appeared on national and international television. The L.A. Times proclaims, “Ivers’ presentation was music with the kind of life and spirit that come together when talented artists from different backgrounds find the linkages that connect all forms of music…no wonder the audience loved every minute.”
