I first saw Lindsey Stirling a couple of years ago on America's Got Talent. She made it through a couple of rounds, but was eliminated. Since then, she has gone on tour and released her own CD.
Last night, I took my 12 year old son to see her in concert. I must say, she has become somewhat of a superstar. It was a sold out concert, standing room only, and the line to get in wrapped completely around the block. I spoke to a number of people in line and during the concert and none of them were violinists, but they were clearly head over heals over her. Here is a vid of her song "Shatter Me."
My 12 year old is crazy about her and can play most of her songs. Half of his practice time is devoted to playing along with her youtube videos. I was wondering, how many of you "violinists" have heard of her and what do you think of her music?
[Edit] I just realized that Laurie did a recent poll on Lindsey Stirling. So I guess that sort of answers my question. At any rate, I would be interested in hearing other opinions on her.
