Fiddler Eileen Ivers has established herself as the pre-eminent exponent of the Irish fiddle in the world today.
Recalling the roaring hearths and roars of laughter that are part and parcel of Christmas in Irish families, virtuoso fiddler Eileen Ivers interweaves age-old Wren Day songs, beloved American carols, and even a jigging Bach in her Joyful Christmas show!
With her signature warmth, Ivers invites listeners in for a tuneful, soulful celebration capturing the true spirit of the season and telling the story of Christmas through music and dance.
