Eileen Ivers

Grammy-winning violinist Eileen Ivers and her band capture the spirit and magic of the season in her heartwarming Christmas holiday show. Nine-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion and music star of Riverdance, Eileen Ivers will change the way you think about the violin. Hailed as one of the great innovators and pioneers in the Celtic and World Music genres, Ivers has established herself as the pre-eminent exponent of the Irish fiddle in the world today.

The program of American and Irish songs, original tunes and holiday favorites, arranged with Eileen’s unique style, are centered around the true meaning of Christmas.

Eileen and the band joyfully perform diverse music from gospel-style ‘Go Tell It On the Mountain,’ to Gaelic classic ‘Don Oiche Ud i mBeithil” (one Night in Bethlehem), to a jig-ified version of Bach’s ‘Jesu Joy,’ to the hornpipe that evolved into today’s ‘Deck the Halls…’ to a very unique ‘The Little Drummer Boy’ performed on the traditional bodhran goat skinned drum.

From the first note to the rousing finale you’ll be taken on a joyous musical journey; a concert for the entire family that celebrates the pure joy of the season!
