Our friend Eileen Ivers is back with Daly Communications! This Irish-American fiddler will be performing at the Spring 2015 Virginia Arts Festival on Friday, May 22nd at 8:00pm. The performance will be taking place at the Williamsburg Lodge, in Williamsburg, VA.
Ivers has been called “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin” by The New York Times – not too shabby for a red-headed female Irish-American! She has performed with notable acts such as the London Symphony Orchestra, the Boston Pops, Sting, and Patti Smith. Musicians and musical groups love to collaborate with Ivers and her fiery fiddle.
Her own work has led her to dig deep into Irish and Celtic sounds, tracing connections between continents and scattered Celtic communities, sharing how these connections reverberate in American roots music, delving into jazz sensibilities and Grappelli-esque improvisations, and incorporating her trademark effects with her eye-catching (and ear-catching) electric violin.
Do not miss out on Eileen Ivers at the Virginia Arts Festival at the Williamsburg Lodge in Williamsburg, VA on Friday, May 22nd!
