“The Jimi Hendrix of the violin” – New York Times.
Grammy®-winning and Emmy-nominated, Eileen Ivers continues to push traditional fiddling boundaries from a folk music staple to a fiercely fresh, powerfully beautiful, intensely driving world stage experience. In a career that has spanned over 30 years, Ivers has performed with Sting, Patti Smith, and The Chieftains. She was the groundbreaking musical star of Riverdance, a former member of the Hall & Oates band, a featured instrumentalist on film soundtracks including Gangs of New York, and she is one of the most awarded All-Ireland Fiddle and Banjo champions ever. With Universal Roots, her energetic, joyous, and passionate band, Eileen connects music, cultures, stories, and emotions that tie us together…celebrating the fact that we are more alike than dissimilar, and that music truly is a universal language.
