Lindsey Stirling tickets
YouTube sensation Lindsey Stirling is perhaps the first – and only – artist in the world to blend classical violin, modern dance, and…The Legend of Zelda?!
Lindsey composes, choreographs, and directs all of her original music and videos - merging unique violin stylings and electronic dub-step beats with animated contemporary dance. Her wide array of videos are all available on her Lindseystomp YouTube channel, which rings in at more than 640,000 subscribers - and has tallied over 102 million hits.
“My musical style is a reflection of my personality,” Lindsey shares, “and through it I hope to share my belief that no one should be afraid to be themselves.” She adds “All my songs were created to depict specific themes that I pulled from my own life experiences. ‘Spontaneous Me’ is about having the courage to love yourself for who you are.”
A classically-trained violinist, Lindsey’s love for music began with free community concerts and the sounds of Tchaikovsky, Beethoven and Mozart played daily in her home on an old record player. At age five she begged her parents for violin lessons. After a year of her incessant pleading, Lindsey’s mom found a teacher she could afford who would give her daughter 15-minute lessons every other week. She hoped that young Lindsey – now six – wouldn’t grow bored. She never did, and has played ever since.
In 2007, Lindsey decided that she wanted to be a guest on Ellen, the hit daytime talk show hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. To get the attention of the show’s producers, she wrote violin parts to the Black-eyed Peas, incorporated dance, and recorded her first video for YouTube. The video went viral online, garnering hundreds of thousands of views and a huge following of fans around the world. Soon, America’s Got Talent came calling, followed by an incredible You Tube career, and live performances spanning the globe – all a testament to Lindsey Stirling’s dazzling blend of violin, dance, and sprite-like personality. “But,” she explains, “my goal is still to get on Ellen!”
