Fiddler Eileen Ivers has established herself as the pre-eminent exponent of the Irish fiddle in the world today.
It is a rare and
select grade of spectacular artists whose work is so boldly imaginative and
clearly virtuosic that it alters the medium. It has been said that the task of
respectfully exploring the traditions and progression of the Celtic fiddle is
quite literally on Eileen Ivers' shoulders. The Washington Post states,
"She suggests the future of the Celtic fiddle." She's been
called a "sensation" by Billboard magazine and "the Jimi Hendrix
of the violin" by The New York Times. "She electrifies the crowd with
a dazzling show of virtuoso playing" says The Irish Times. Ivers'
recording credits include over 80 contemporary and traditional albums and
numerous movie scores. Her latest CD, entitled 'Eileen Ivers & Immigrant
Soul' continues to display why Ivers is hailed as one of the great innovators
and pioneers in the Celtic and World music genres.
