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.
