Eileen Ivers will change the way you think about the violin.

She has firmly established herself as the pre-eminent exponent of the Irish fiddle in the world today. Her long list of accomplishments includes a Grammy award, an Emmy nomination, and headline performances with the London Symphony Orchestra, Boston Pops and over 40 orchestras across the world.

Her recording credits include over 80 contemporary and traditional albums and numerous movie scores. Eileen is hailed as one of the great innovators and pioneers in the Celtic and World music genres.

...the Jimi Hendrix of the violin...

New York Times

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.

With "unIVERSal roots," her energetic, joyous, passionate band, Eileen continues to connect music, cultures, stories, and emotions that tie us together. 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.

She electrifies the crowd with a dazzling show of virtuoso playing...

The Irish Times

The LA 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."
