Montgomery County Community College’s Lively Arts Series is proud to present Eileen Ivers on Saturday, October 10, at 8 p.m. in the Science Center Theater.

As the daughter of Irish immigrants, fiddler Eileen Ivers experienced a childhood in a culturally diverse Bronx neighborhood that inspired her blend of Irish music and North American roots music. Her sound is a celebration–the story of the Irish immigrant’s impact on America, and America’s impact on the Irish immigrant.
