Irish-American fiddler Eileen Ivers was a founding member of Cherish the Ladies, and has performed as a member of the international touring company Riverdance. Fiddling since she was nine, Ivers is a nine-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion. With a combination of traditional and self-penned tunes, Ivers has been called the “Jimi Hendrix of the Fiddle.”
On Saturday, Ivers will rosin her bow and play the tunes at the North Carolina Museum of Art. The performance will be followed by a screening of the film “Brooklyn,” about a young Irish woman’s emigration to America in the early 1950s. Tickets are $22-$40. Get more details at ncartmuseum.org.
