Bill and I went to see Eileen Ivers and Immigrant Soul in Geneva, NY. She is an AMAZING fiddle player as the nine-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion and original music star of Riverdance. We discovered her music about 4 years ago when I surprised Bill with tickets to see her at the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA. We have seen her 4 or 5 times now and encourage anyone who likes Irish music, fiddle playing or just an all around high energy good time to go and experience her and the band. The lead singer is Tommy McDonnell and recorded and performed with "The Original Blues Brothers Band". They are so fun and really know how to get the crowd going. There were people there from 8 - 80 and everyone had their toes tapping and their hands clapping.

You can see more about her and her band here: http://www.eileenivers.com/index.html and see more about her story as told by Sunday Morning news show here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GW9Jqsrj8xo

Below is a short video I took to give you a taste of the show we saw in Geneva. Yes I know the video flips toward the end...sorry. What do you want, I'm a photographer, not a videographer! :)
