Jamie Laval in Portland
"One of the hottest fiddlers out there, this act has been turning heads wherever it plays." (Asheville Citizen-Times)

Jamie Laval creates rapt audiences with his passionate performances of traditional music of Scotland, Ireland, Brittany and Quebec, blending an ancient art form with stunning virtuosity and contemporary flair that resonates with families, youth, seniors, and devotees of ethnic, jazz, Bluegrass, and classical music.

An evening concert experience with Jamie combines toe-tapping melodies, amusing stories, foot percussion, poetry, and delicately nuanced accompaniment from guitarist Dan Compton to create a beautiful  atmosphere of the Scottish Highlands.

Please join us at 6:30 pm before the show for an Artist Meet 'n' Greet. Enjoy chatting with Jamie and Dan over a pint and consider sitting down for a meal.

A native of Seattle currently residing in North Carolina, Jamie initially studied classical violin at the Victoria Conservatory of Music and made his living as a professional symphony musician, recording studio artist, improvising violinist, and contra dance fiddler. But his passion for the haunting sounds of rural Scottish folk music eventually usurped all other preoccupations, and he now devotes himself exclusively to Celtic music.

In 2002 Jamie won the U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Championship and is now hailed as "One of North America's finest practitioners of traditional Scottish music" (San Jose Mercury News) and "The next Alasdair Fraser" (Scotland Press and Post). His touring career includes over 100 engagements per year throughout the U.S. and Scotland. He has appeared on the NBC Today Show, Dave Matthews' Some Devil album, and performed for Her Majesty the Queen. Jamie's newest album, Murmurs and Drones, won the popular vote for "Best World Traditional Album" in the 2012 Independent Music Awards.   www.jamielaval.com
