You may know the name Lindsey Stirling from her appearance on America’s Got Talent in 2010, but her talent goes way deeper than that. The performance violinist started her journey when she was just 5 years old when she had to make the tough choice to focus on the violin rather than taking dance lessons. She went through the common struggles necessary to become one of the best and came closing to throwing in the towel several times due to personal issues with depression and anorexia, however she pushed through and honed her skills. She created a Youtube Channel in 2007 to start showcasing her performances, which grew to over 12 million followers. In fact, her music video for “Crystallize” received so many views that it was the 8th most watched Youtube Video in 2012.
See Lindsey Stirling play her unique mix of music from every genre from rock to electronic as she takes the stage at Concord Pavilion on Saturday, July 17.
