ROCHESTER - The Rochester Opera House will host a concert by Grammy-Award winner Eileen Ivers Nov. 30 at 8 p.m.
For more than 20 years, Ivers and her band have been celebrating the glorious story of Christmas thoughtfully, uniquely and with pure unbridled joy.
Ivers' Irish and American roots shine through the evening's music, beautifully mixing traditional, story-filled folk, age-old Wren Day songs, a jig-ified Bach, fiddle looping, and of course foot stomping and hollering roots music.
Ivers' and the ensemble's 20 instruments and voices weave throughout the evening coupled with Ivers' signature warmth, inviting listeners in for a tuneful, soulful celebration capturing the true spirit of the season rejoicing in the traditional story of Christmas.
Grammy awarded and Emmy nominated, Ivers has been a guest of the London Symphony Orchestra and Boston Pops and is an original musical star of Riverdance.
She is also a nine-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion.
She's also played with Sting, Hall and Oates, The Chieftains, 'Fiddlers 3' with Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and Regina Carter, Patti Smith, Al Di Meola and Steve Gadd.
