Crossover Artist Spotlight: Lindsey Stirling

With her newest album, Shatter Me, climbing the charts, Lindsey Stirling is certainly grabbing some attention as an electric violinist. Wait, an electric violinist? Kind of an oxymoron for classical music purists! But Lindsey is tackling all sorts of genres in her work, from original material to video game themes to musicals. And here she is performing a medley from The Phantom of the Opera, the longest running Broadway show of all time, and accompanying it with a very creative music video. Do you believe this particular piece was successful? Have you listened to the Shatter Me album? What do you think of the fact that Lindsey started out on YouTube?
