Bronx-born Irish fiddle champion Eileen Ivers and her band Immigrant Soul, perform at the Lowell Summer Music Series at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 20, 2011 at Boarding House Park in downtown Lowell.
Tickets to the concert are $21 in advance and can be purchased online. Tickets the day of the event are $25.
Considered one of the best fiddlers of her generation, Ivers captured a record number of All Ireland Fiddle awards, then became the musical standout in the show Riverdance, which toured around the world. Her current ensemble of virtuoso musicians stretches the boundaries of traditional Irish music by incorporating elements of world music, rock, jazz and salsa.
