Eileen Ivers – Universal Roots

February 28 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$20 – $60

Shredding her electric fiddle through looping, fuzz and wah effects — sawing her bow across the strings like an orchestral psychedelic rock star — Eileen Ivers is, essentially, “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin,” writes The New York Times. Having played with more than 50 symphony orchestras, this nine-time All Ireland Fiddle Champion is now touring with her dynamic new band, Universal Roots. A Grammy Award-winner and Emmy-nominated performer, Ivers pushes the boundaries of the fiddling tradition, taking a fiercely fresh approach to the folk music staple instrument. Her most recent work showcases the intersection of Celtic tradition and North American roots music, taking audiences on a journey through time, from folk traditions to modern influence.
