Innovator and master fiddler Eileen Ivers continues to expand the vernacular of her instrument with Wild Blue. From her solid base in traditional Irish music, Eileen soars through an exuberant menu of jazz, African, blues, Eastern European, and swing styles, playing with exhilarating  wild flourishes and changes, and a great sense of fun and abandon. 

Wild Blue is a multi-cultural stew of reels, hornpipes, bourees, and jigs all spiced with superb musicianship. The percussion of Kimati Dinizulu on the album’s lead track "On Horseback" gives immediate notice of a world music journey in the making. Seamus Egan (soundtrack composer for The Brothers McMullen) contributes his renowned flute playing on the vibrant "Ships Are Sailing;" Uilleann piper Jerry O’Sullivan delivers a gorgeous version of "Scatter The Mud;" and "Blue Groove" is the result of a rockin’ studio jam, with Eileen on electric fiddle joined by Wolk straddling organ, 12-string, and bass, Peter Moshay on percussion, Ben Wittman on drums, andJohn Doyle on guitars.
