Eileen Ivers, the pre-eminent exponent of the Irish fiddle in the world today, presents a free, live concert from her loft in New York.

The daughter of Irish immigrants, Eileen Ivers grew up in the culturally diverse neighborhood of the Bronx, New York. Rooted in Irish traditional music since the age of eight, Eileen proceeded to win nine All-Ireland fiddle championships, a tenth on tenor banjo, and over 30 championship medals, making her one of the most awarded persons ever to compete in these prestigious competitions.

Her long list of accomplishments includes a Grammy award, an Emmy nomination, and headline performances with the London Symphony Orchestra, Boston Pops and over 40 orchestras across the world.

The LA Times proclaims, "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."
