Celebrate the return of Celtic music to Rockwell Hall with one of its biggest stars - nine-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion and Grammy-Award winner Eileen Ivers and her band Immigrant Soul! Eileen is the original musical star of Riverdance and has established herself as the preeminent exponent of the Irish fiddle in the world today. She's been hailed "a sensation" by Billboard magazine, "a virtuoso" by The Irish Times and "the Jimi Hendrix of the violin" by the New York Times.
Eileen Ivers will change the way you think about the violin. She has performed with everyone from the London Symphony Orchestra, to The Chieftains, Sting, Hall and Oates, Randy Brecker, Patti Smith, Paula Cole, Al Di Meola, and Steve Gadd. She was a founding member of Cherish the Ladies and is a Grammy awarded and Emmy nominated musician. Her movie soundtracks include Gangs of New York. She has performed for Presidents and Royalty worldwide.
It is a rare and select grade of artists whose work is so boldly imaginative and clearly virtuosic that it alters the medium. Of Eileen Ivers, The Washington Post stated, "She suggests the future of the Celtic fiddle,"; and the Post was neither the first nor last to suggest that the task of exploring the traditions and progression of the Celtic fiddle is on Eileen Ivers' shoulders.
Eileen has created Beyond the Bog Road, a multimedia concert of music, story, dance and film. The concert celebrates the journey of the Irish immigrant and showcases how Irish music and dance have integrated with various roots music of North America to create one of the richest cross-fertilizations of folk music styles in the world. It is a celebration of the immigrant’s journey – it is the story of the Irish immigrant’s impact on America and America’s impact on the Irish immigrant.
She is simply the best there is. Don’t miss this electrifying evening of Celtic fiddle and more.
