Celtic Caltech: Eileen Ivers plays the fiddle

Nov 1, 2010

My father, despite being of Ashkenazi descent, is convinced he is Irish at heart. Why? The music (it really gets to him). Bagpipes are best, but fiddle is a close second. He was understandably overjoyed, then, to hear that Eileen Ivers will be playing Caltech this Friday. She’s the queen of the fiddle, the winner of nine (9!) All-Ireland Fiddle Championships. Also, Sting likes her, so she must be good. Here are 60+ YouTube videos if you don’t believe me.
