His CD, Zephyr In The Confetti Factory, won Best World Traditional Song in the 2007 Independent Music Awards Vox Populi, and he collaborated on Dave Matthews album Some Devil, Warner Bros. Pictures Wild America, and WB-TV series Everwood. Laval has appeared on the NBC Today show and given a private performance for Her Majesty The Queen.
Originally a Northwest resident, Laval now resides in North Carolina and tours nationally with over 120 engagements per year. He is heralded as One of North Americas finest practitioners of traditional Scottish music (San Jose Mercury News) and One of the hottest fiddlers out there (Asheville Citizen Times). He serves on the faculty of The Swannanoa Gathering, a celebrated summer institute for traditional arts and music.
