"Eileen Ivers is the Jimi Hendrix of the violin." —The New York Times
Eileen Ivers is guaranteed to change the way you think about the violin. She's been called “a sensation” by Billboard magazine, “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin” by The New York Times, and “the future of the Celtic fiddle” by The Washington Post. Her imaginative, bold style of playing electrifies audiences with dazzling displays of virtuosity, and has altered the progression of the Celtic fiddle forever. An original musical star of Riverdance and founding member of Cherish the Ladies, Eileen Ivers is also a nine-time All-Ireland Fiddle champion; has performed for presidents and royalty worldwide; has recorded movie soundtracks; and has collaborated with The Chieftains, Sting, Hall and Oates, Randy Brecker, Patti Smith, and many more. If you experienced the sold-out, world-premiere performance of her Beyond the Bog Road in 2009, you know that everyone becomes just a little bit Irish when this GRAMMY®-winning artist takes the stage with her acclaimed band Immigrant Soul!
