Share






After reporting last week that Meri Tadic, the fiddler for Eluveitie, had part ways with the band.  They took no time in finding her replacement.  Reporting on their [Facebook], Eluveitie has announced that Nicole Ansperger will be their new fiddler.  Nicole will start touring with them when they hit up the Eluveitie & Friends festival in Switzerland later this month.

The band had this to say about their new member:

As hard as farewells can be, as auspicious are new beginnings! We are thrilled to introduce to you Meri's successor. We consider ourselves lucky to have found a true master of Celtic Folk fiddling! A full-blooded musician and violin player through and through, she has played countless shows over many years and also worked as a session musician with many well-known acts (such as The Hooters, for instance). During the last ten years she further made a name for herself with her engagement with the Irish folk rock bands Paddy Goes To Holyhead and Across The Border, but also the renowned medieval/classical metal act Haggard. Not only a virtuoso of the fiddle, she also plays the 7-stringed violin as well as the cello! So, ladies and gentlemen - please welcome to the Eluveitie camp: Nicole Ansperger!

Nicole has also comment about the exciting news:

Dear Eluveitie fans, I am absolutely delighted to be Eluveitie's new violin player. I love Eluveitie's music and have been a fan myself for a long time. Is there anything better than getting to play for the band you love? I am looking forward to many sweat-inducing, incredible shows with you and the band. See you on stage!
