Eileen Ivers captures the spirit and magic of the season in her heartwarming Celtic Christmas show. Ivers is a seven time all-Ireland fiddle champion, star of the original Riverdance and best-selling recording artist. She has established herself as the world's preeminent exponent of the Irish fiddle. Backed by her brilliantly versatile band, Immigrant Soul, Ivers creates programs that showcase a unique Irish-fusion sound drawing upon a wide range of musical styles.
Ivers' Christmas program is a celebration of the great swell of anticipation that surrounds grand celebrations of the holiday in Ireland - from the clamor and delight of Christmas Eve, to the peace and beauty of Christmas Day, to the lively parties held on Boxing Day. Families entertain each other with stories and music as they have for centuries and Ivers shares these joyful Irish customs with her audience.
