Eileen Ivers, an Irish fiddle player, is known for her work in “Riverdance” and also the group Cherish the Ladies. Ivers and her band, Immigrant Soul, perform Thursday at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville.

Eileen Ivers’ uncle told her a story recently. He remembers her being about 4 years old, taking a spoon and moving it across the strings of a plastic toy guitar. She was playing air violin.
