Eileen Ivers Fiddler

Eileen Ivers (born 13 July 1965) is an Irish-American musician. Eileen Ivers was born in New York City of Irish-born parents and grew up in the Bronx. She spent summers in Ireland and took up the fiddle at the age of nine. Her teacher was the Irish fiddler Martin Mulvihill. She toured with Mick Moloney's band The Green Fields of America, founded in 1977. She graduated magna cum laude from Iona College in New York and has done post-graduate work in mathematics. Eileen was a founding member of Cherish the Ladies. She recorded and toured with them for several years. in 1995, she replaced the original fiddler in the Riverdance Irish dance troupe and toured with them. Her original blue Barcus-Berry electric fiddle was eye-catching and inspired the name of her album Wild Blue. She later replaced it with a blue ZETA Strados acoustic-electric fiddle, which is a one-of-a-kind instrument with unique sound and ambience. It was custom-made for her by ZETA Music Systems (who will be producing an "Eileen Ivers Signature Series" Blue electric violin exactly like hers). Micheál Ó Súilleabháin is an Irish composer who uses folk, classical and jazz influences.
