“Lately, just classic rock. That gets me going. Usually if I’m around the house, I’ll throw on the jazz station or a new favorite CD, like [Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile’s] ‘The Goat Rodeo Sessions,’ but if it’s a grinding kind of serious cleaning day, I’ll go classic rock.”
Fiddler Eileen Ivers rosins up her bow for a holiday concert, “An Nollaig: Irish Christmas,” at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy at 3pm on Sunday. Joining Ivers and her band will be local performers from the Tri-City Christmas Ensemble and the Boland School of Irish Dance. Tix are $27, $32 & $38; students $15.
