Lindsey Stirling

Lindsey Stirling leaped and danced across the stage at The Marquee last night in Tempe. Stirling is known for her unique blend of classical and modern electronic music styles. She plays violin over original dubstep tracks and other remixes. Her live shows are a complete production, equipped with many costume changes, backup dancers and choreography. Her hometown show (she's from Gilbert) housed a diverse group of fans -- families, grandparents, kids, gutter punks and a woman reading a book on the patio. We wanted to talk to some of them and figure out just what is the allure a Lindsey Stirling show holds.
