Sat. 7/9 at 7pm: Nine-time All Ireland Fiddle Champion (and once on the Banjo, too), this Bronx-born Irish American fiddler set the stage for a whole new sound in Irish music. Tune in for her fantastic performance recorded live at the Moab Folk Festival.
Known for her work with the all female super group Cherish the Ladies, and Riverdance, Ivers has gone on to craft a highly-tuned solo career, performing worldwide with her inspiring blend of Traditional Celtic music, Rock n' Roll and a little soul for good measure. She is fondly referred to as "The Jimi Hendrix of fiddle players."
