I took my Mother out last night for some Fancy Fiddlin at our Fox Theatre here in downtown Spokane and we had the pleasure of seeing Eileen Ivers perform. All that I can say is WOW! That girl gets down on the violin! I've never seen anyone play like that!
Eileen Ivers has it all -- Nine Time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion, National Symphony at The Kennedy Center, Boston Pops, London Symphony Orchestra, musical star of Riverdance, The Chieftains, Hall and Oates, founding member of Cherish the Ladies, Fiddler Eileen Ivers has established herself as the pre-eminent exponent of the Irish fiddle in the world today.
"...the Jimi Hendrix of the violin." -- The New York Times
"Nobody does it better than Eileen Ivers. Not only does the orchestra savor her musicianship and professionalism, but, she never misses to bring a pops audience to its feet with thunderous ovations." - Marvin Hamlisch, National Symphony and Pittsburgh Symphony Pops Conductor
"Ivers plays with such genius that she surpasses genre. It was an invigorating, highly energetic evening." - Nancy Stetson, Naples Daily News
