Virtuoso Celtic fiddler Eileen Ivers—founding member of Cherish the Ladies, original Riverdance star, and lifelong traveler of Ireland’s musical paths—brings to light the riveting world of Irish stories and sounds.

Ivers is mapping out these compelling tracks for audiences across North America with a new multimedia concert, Beyond the Bog Road. The images, sounds, and tales of Irish immigrants’ desperate and daring journeys to and in America come together in Ivers’ stunning technique, unique artistry, and deep Irish-American roots. Ivers and her ensemble of 13 musicians and dancers will be performing in Florida, Utah, New Hampshire, Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania.

Irish music integrated with other North American music to form the root of everything from bluegrass to country,” explains Ivers. “This was one of the richest cross-fertilizations of folk music styles anywhere. And it’s still bearing fruit.”

Ivers has lived and breathed this cross-fertilization and its musical outgrowths from birth. She grew up in the Bronx, the daughter of Irish immigrants, raised on the music of her parents’ homeland. With a talent for mathematics—a field in which she pursued post-graduate studies—Ivers learned how to combine heart and passion with incredible technical precision. Her prowess with the fiddle won her not only nine All-Ireland Fiddle Championships, but also the admiration of musicians from Sting to The Chieftains to the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra, among her many affiliations.
