Lakeside Chautauqua’s concert with Cherish the Ladies, scheduled for Thursday, July 10, has been cancelled due to medical reasons. Eileen Ivers & Immigrant Soul will now perform that evening. Lakeside Chautauqua apologizes for any inconvenience this causes, and looks forward to the performance by another great name in Irish music.
Eileen Ivers & Immigrant Soul’s concert celebrates the journey of the Irish immigrant and showcases how Irish music and dance have integrated with the various musical roots of North America.
The musical group headlines performing arts centers, guest stars with numerous symphonies, performs at major festivals worldwide and has appeared on national and international television.
Ivers has been called a “sensation” by Billboard Magazine and “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin” by The New York Times.
As the daughter of Irish immigrants, Ivers grew up in the culturally diverse neighborhood of Bronx, N.Y.
Ivers won nine All-Ireland Fiddle Championships, one on the tenor banjo, and received more than 30 championship medals.
Being an Irish-American, the intrigue of learning more about the multi-cultural sounds of her childhood took hold.
In 1999, Ivers established a touring production to present the music that now encompasses Eileen Ivers & Immigrant Soul.
Her ensemble features Tommy McDonnell (vocalist, percussion), Buddy Connolly (accordion, whistles, keyboard), Greg Anderson (guitar, backing vocals) and Leo Traversa (bass guitar).
McDonnell is also from New York and has been performing professionally since he was 15. He has appeared on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Saturday Night Live.”
Connolly is a three-time All-Ireland Accordion Champion.
Anderson has performed with Cathie Ryan, Tommy Sands, Seán Tyrrell and Steeleye Span fiddler, Peter Knight.
Traversa is a founding and current faculty member of the Bass Collective in New York City, N.Y. and has taught at the Collective since 1987.
Ivers’ recording credits include more than 80 contemporary and traditional albums and numerous movie scores.
This show is co-sponsored by WGTE-PBS.
