Watch video of the most recent presentation in the InsideOut of the Lunch Box series – The Culture of Irish Music in America – which took place on October 25. Eileen Ivers is an original musical star of the hit show Riverdance and has been named All-Ireland Fiddle Champion nine times. Being an Irish-American, born in the Bronx to Irish immigrants, Eileen incorporates the multicultural sounds of her childhood and adult experience to the traditional Irish music of her roots. The Washington Post writes, “She suggests the future of the Celtic fiddle.” Participants learned about the journey of a virtuosic musician and enjoyed music by Eileen Ivers and Immigrant Soul.
InsideOut of the Lunch Box is a series of lunchtime presentations and discussions about the performing arts.
