The first Pops concert, Autumn Pops—Celtic Soul, features a breathless virtuoso fiddle performance by legendary Celtic fiddler and original star of Riverdance, Eileen Ivers. Known for her electrifying concerts that bring audiences to their feet, Ivers is joined by her ensemble, Immigrant Soul, local Irish dancers, and the Stockton Symphony.
The concert begins at 6:00 p.m. at the Atherton Auditorium on the San Joaquin Delta College campus in Stockton, and repeats Sunday, September 22nd, at 2:30 p.m.
She's been called a "sensation" by Billboard magazine and "the Jimi Hendrix of the violin" by The New York Times. "She electrifies the crowd with a dazzling show of virtuoso playing," says The Irish Times. Eileen Ivers' recording credits include over 80 contemporary and traditional albums and numerous movie scores. Ivers is hailed as one of the great innovators and pioneers in the Celtic and World music genres.
