Giveaway: Eileen Ivers & Immigrant Soul at Walton Arts Center

Eileen Ivers


This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winner, Tom Sawyer.

If the New York Times calls you the Jimi Hendrix of something, it seems safe to assume you’re pretty awesome at that thing.

By that logic, it seems equally safe to assume Eileen Ivers, who the Times called the “Jimi Hendrix of violin,” is going to freak some people out with her fiddling ability when she arrives at the Walton Arts Center for a performance on Thursday, Nov. 15.

Ivers is considered the world’s pre-eminent exponent of the Irish fiddle. Her accomplishments include nine All-Ireland Fiddle Championship titles and performances with the London Symphony Orchestra, Boston Pops, Sting, Hall and Oates and Riverdance star Steve Gadd. She has also appeared more than 80 albums and numerous film scores including 2002’s Gangs of New York.

She’s a fiddling maniac.

But don’t take our (or The Times‘) word for it. Enter to win one of two pairs of tickets, and see for yourself. Good luck.

How to enter
