Description

EILEEN IVERS, CONTINUES TO PUSH THE FIDDLING TRADITION BOUNDARIES FROM A FOLK MUSIC STAPLE TO A INTENSELY DRIVING WORLD STAGE EXPERIENCE.

Event Details

Americana and World with Celtic roots
What’s the difference between a fiddle and a violin? In the hands of a celebrated guest soloist with over 50 Symphony Orchestras, who also shreds electric fiddle through fuzz, wah and looping effects …who is called “the future of the Celtic Fiddle” by the Washington Post, and “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin” by the New York Times …who is Bronx born, yet the 9-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion. What’s the difference? Nothing, in the hands of Eileen Ivers.

Grammy®-Awarded and Emmy-nominated, Eileen Ivers, continues to push the fiddling tradition boundaries from a folk music staple to a fiercely fresh, powerfully beautiful, intensely driving world stage experience.

Eileen’s new, energetic, joyous and passionate band, Universal Roots, connect music, cultures, stories and emotions that tie us together …celebrating the fact that we are more alike than dissimilar. Music truly is the universal language. The ensemble, with a broad array of instrumentation, features Matt Mancuso (lead vocals, guitar, trumpet, fiddle), Buddy Connolly (button accordion, whistles, piano, vocals), Lindsey Horner (upright and electric bass, baritone sax, vocals), Dave Barckow (lead vocals, percussion, guitar), together with Eileen on fiddle, mandolin, banjo, bodhran, and live looping.
