Eileen Ivers

Famed musician with a boldly imaginative multicultural style that “suggests the future of the Celtic fiddle.”

Eileen Ivers is a pre-eminent exponent of the Irish fiddle. She is a Nine Time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion, the original Musical Star of Riverdance, and a founding member of Cherish the Ladies. She is a Grammy Award winner, has been nominated for an Emmy, and has guest starred with over 40 orchestras including the London Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops. She has appeared on stage with The Chieftains, as well as pop stars such as Sting and Hall and Oates and has performed for Presidents and royalty worldwide.

It is a rare artist whose work is so boldly imaginative and clearly virtuosic that it alters the medium. It has been said that the task of respectfully exploring the traditions and progression of the Celtic fiddle is quite literally on Eileen Ivers’ shoulders.

“She suggests the future of the Celtic fiddle.” —Washington Post

The daughter of Irish immigrants, Eileen Ivers grew up in the culturally diverse neighborhood of Bronx, New York. Becoming intrigued with the variety of traditional music that was all around her, she immersed herself in the different genres of music which she experienced growing up. This wide-ranging musical exploration has helped her to develop a unique sound which she has called “Immigrant Soul.”

“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.” —Los Angeles Times
