TEMECULA – On Saturday, Feb. 13, a Valentine’s in-home concert will be presented entitled Celtic Dreams with Scarlet Rivera (Bob Dylan, Tracy Chapman, Indigo Girls)and Eric Rigler (Titanic, Braveheart, Charlotte Church). This concert will be held at a private estate home and the exact address will only be given to ticket holders.
Eric Rigler is known throughout the music industry as “the most recorded bagpiper of all time”. He has been playing all forms of bagpipes and Irish Whistles since he was a child. It has been said that if one hears bagpipes in a movie or on television, it is most likely to be Eric Rigler. His playing was recently featured in a commercial for Titleist Golf and episodes of Battlestar Galactica on the SciFi Channel. His movie credits include Titanic, Million Dollar Baby, Road to Perdition, Braveheart, Cinderella Man, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and many others. Rigler played “Amazing Grace” at former President Ronald Reagan’s funeral in 2004.
Scarlet Rivera is a U.S. violinist and played on Bob Dylan’s 1976 album Desire and the legendary Rolling Thunder Tour that followed. She also appears on Dylan’s Live 1975 (2002). Mr. Dylan is often credited for discovering the violinist.
