Music Madness: Lindsey Stirling

Watch the Stars Align With Hiphop Violinist Lindsey Stirling at the Paramount

Lindsey Stirling

Who: Dubstep ballerina. Classically trained violinist. Mormon comedian. All of these traits encompass the talented Lindsey Stirling, and combined are the very reason she has become the sensation she is today.  Stirling’s stardom began when she was voted off America’s Got Talent back in 2010, where she was told the world has no place for a poppy dancing violinist. Stirling has since squashed that statement, and entered a realm of music all her own, combining big electro beats and womp womps we tend to associate in dubstep with the soothing classical violin.  It’s not everyday a girl from a little town in Arizona sells out shows all over the country, and sells hundreds of thousands of albums from Russia to Switzerland, but after hearing her collaborations and seeing the energy in her performance, there is no denying her place in the spotlight. Her song Crystallize was the 8th most viewed video on Youtube last year, hitting over 93 million views today, and has well over 4.6 million subscribers to her channel. Stirling is unlike any other artist you’ve seen before, and her performance at the Paramount Theatre is certainly one for the books. She has been known to receive requests from fans, and has put the Lindsey touch on versions of Zelda, Game of Thrones, Imagine Dragons and Michael Jackson and her collaboration with John Legend for a version of his hit All of Me will move you to tears. Check out the dubstep Tinkerbell at the Paramount next week.

When: Wednesday May, 21st at 8:00pm @ Paramount Theatre
