Today my daughter “shared” a video on Facebook of a talented young lady by the name of “Lindsey Stirling”. Lindsey has come across the idea of combining “dubstep” with her style of violin playing. I became amazed at her ability to contort her body into all manner of form while playing during her video of “Crystallize”. Young ladies prancing around the stage while playing violin are nothing new, think “Celtic Women Tours”, but Ms Stirling seems to do it with new charm. Perhaps it’s her innocent demeanor and facial expressions that carry you away on her musical journey.
A quick jump over to “YouTube” yielded a whole slew of Lindsey videos and music to enjoy! I eventually found one of her on “America’s got Talent”, where she received both “kudos” and harsh criticism, which she seemed to easily handle. This is one artist to watch as she delivers a wholesome, enjoyable experience. I wish I could be there with my daughter to see her when she takes the stage in Arizona.
I highly recommend the trip over to http://lindseystirlingviolin.mybigcommerce.com/ to pick up her album. And no, I don’t get an affiliate cut on this one!
