After ten years with the band, violinist Meri Tadic and the popular folk metal band Eluveitie are planning an amicable split to coincide with the end of 2013. “I have lived a wonderful and unique time with this band,” stated Tadic in an official statement regarding her departure. Tadic also insisted that her departure had nothing to do with Irij, her one-woman folk music project, and wished Eluveitie and their fans the best.
Eluveitie’s last performance to feature Meri Tadic will take place in Frauenfeld, SWitzerland, at the Eluveitie & Friends III Festival on December 28. The festival will feature performances by Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, Varg, Odroerir, and Dreamshade. Tickets are available here.
