Eluveitie Recruits New Violin PLayer Nicole Ansperger

After announcing its split with Meri Tadic, Swiss folk metal institution Eluveitie is pleased to officially announce Nicole Ansperger as the band's new violinist. Eluveitie comments:

"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 played as a session musician for many well-known acts (such as The Hooters, for instance).

"During the last ten years she further made a name for herself through 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 also adds: “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!”

Nicole will join on stage with Eluveitie for the first time at the upcoming "Eluveitie & Friends" festival and will play a brand new song from the group's next album.
