ALBANY — Critically acclaimed electronic violinist Lindsey Stirling is scheduled to kick off her Warming In The Winter Christmas Tour from the Palace Theatre on Wednesday, Nov. 8, at 8 p.m.
Stirling announced plans to release her first ever holiday album titled Warmer In The Winter, set for release this fall on Lindseystomp Music / Concord Records. Featuring a variety of special guests, the album will include renditions of holiday favorites as well as some original numbers written by Stirling.
The show will feature a fully revamped stage production with elaborate holiday themes as well Stirling’s signature brand of dance routines and on-stage visuals.
Stirling is one of the biggest artist development breakthrough stories in recent years. An acclaimed violinist from Gilbert, Ariz., Stirling has entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, using her classical violin training to leap through the music industry with almost 10 million YouTube subscribers, over 1.9 billion views on her YouTube channel, two Billboard Music Awards, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide. She’s created a new music world where modern classical meets the infectious energy of dance and electronica. On stage, Stirling moves with the grace of a ballerina but works the crowd into a frenzy, “dropping the beat” like a rave fairy.
Stirling’s most recent and critically acclaimed third studio album “Brave Enough,” debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart and went on to score the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s year-end Top Dance/Electronic Album list, placing ahead of dance music heavyweights Chainsmokers, Flume and Kygo. The album also had the highest selling week for an album title on the ranking chart and Lindsey herself placed at No. 6 on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Artist year-end list. Collaborations on the album include ZZ Ward, Andrew McMahon and the Wilderness, Rivers Cuomo and Christina Perri to name a few, and earned Stirling a 2017 Billboard Music Award for “Top Dance/Electronic Album”. The album’s current single “Love’s Just A Feeling” recently debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and has begun to pick up traction at radio across the US.
