This girl is such a joy to watch!
It puzzles me why they (the TabChoir) continue to promote Lindsey as a
"hip-hop" violinist!?!? Huh???I checked (pretty-much) her
entire website and NEVER once saw the use of the term "hip-hop" a single
time, to describe or promote her style or technique.So why does the
MoTabChoir continue to refer to her that way??
Stirling is a very positive voice at a time a lot of people need a positive
voice. I believe she does a lot of good for everyone.Although her
style is completely modern, it's not really a blend of traditional just
because it's a violin, especially not because of her writing style. All
music has traditional roots. But if we're qualifying her style, I really
have to go with modern.However one defines it, I'm excited for
her to perform with the Mo-Tab. It's one of the most exciting things any
LDS musician could hope for.
@InspectorCCouldn't agree more...anybody who refers to Lindsey
Stirling as a "hip-hop" violinist has no idea what hip-hop music really
@InspectorCReally?? You scoured Lindsey Stirling's website just
to see if the MoTab's info was faulty?If you'd done a
simple Google Search instead you would have seen that Lindsey Stirling has been
described as a "hip-hop violinist" by USAToday, the Chicago Sun-Times,
YouTube, Wikipedia, the SL Trib, and yes, the DNews, long before she was invited
to perform with the Tabernacle Choir. It's her brand name - not a phrase
the Choir made up. One of her best-known videos shows her playing along with a
track by the Black-Eyed Peas ("Pump It"), who are about as
"hip-hop" as it gets.And then there are Lindsey's own
words (from the indiegogo website)- "My name is Lindsey Stirling. I am a hip
hop violinist." That kinda seals the deal, doesn't it!?@Brave Sir RobinHip-hop isn't just one thing. It's a
conglomerate of styles, always changing and morphing with each new musician who
has been influenced by it... like Lindsey Stirling, for example. She probably
has a pretty good idea of what hip-hop music "really is." She makes it
herself, very successfully, and on her own terms.
I wonder if Lindsey will get MoTab to sing soundrack for Assassin's Creed.
:) Hehehe. She's done some unusual songs on her site, still it's fun
to see how she can twist all these musical pieces into something new and nice to
