Random Discovery: Lindsey Stirling, Video Game Violinist

I was watching videos of Assassin’s Creed 3 on ign.com and accidentally discovered an interview footage of this eccentric female violinist playing Zelda and AC3 medleys. I thought she was very interesting musician almost resembling a character sprang from a video game.  She also covered themes of Phantom of the Opera and Lord of the Rings which I liked immediately. I later found out she was a finalist in the America’s Got Talent and has released her official self-title album.

I’m a music fan who welcomes any type of blend of classic and modern music, so I’m very much attracted to the music she plays, especially her own interpretations of video game soundtracks. By the way, she’s coming to Toronto next March. I’d love to go when I can hum her original tunes by heart!
