Jamie Laval in Salinas
Jamie and Zac will present a 2-hour program of traditional music from around the Celtic diaspora, including Scotland, Ireland, Bretagne, Galicia, Quebec, and Appalachia.
"One of the hottest fiddlers out there, this act has been turning heads wherever it plays", reports the Asheville Citizen-Times.
Lavals unique approach to traditional Celtic music blends the simplicity of an ancient art form with stunning virtuosity and contemporary flair that resonates with families, youth, seniors, and devotees of ethnic, jazz, and classical music. 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 The next Alasdair Fraser (Press and Post). Laval serves on the faculty of The Swannanoa Gathering. www.JamieLaval.com
Guitarist Zac Leger presently resides in Los Angeles. He tours with the Eileen Ivers Band and Celtic Crossroads and is equally respected for his stunning playing of Uillean pipes, whistle, and the Irish Bouzouki. Last year Zac won the All-Ireland Championship for piping. www.ZacLeger.com
