Fiddler Eileen Ivers, supported by a stellar band—guitarist Matthew Mancuso, bassist Lindsey Horner, percussionist Dave Barckow, and accordionist Buddy Connolly—stopped by the Strings office to record a lively, joyful Strings Session. This new video series invites string players into our studio to play the music that inspires them. Today marks the release of Ivers’ new album, Beyond the Bog Road, which explores the influence of Irish fiddle music on other North American styles. Bob Doerschuk talks to Ivers about this project in an upcoming Strings magazine story, and stay tuned for the finished Strings Sessions video!
