Jamie Laval.
Recognized throughout the U.S. and Britain as one of the premier performers of traditional folk music on the international music scene today, Jamie Laval creates rapt audiences with his passionate, virtuosic performances, uncanny imitation of Highland bagpipes, and engaging stories. One of the hottest fiddlers out there (Asheville Citizen-Times) and The next Alasdair Fraser (Press & Post), Laval performed for Her Majesty the Queen, appeared on Dave Matthews' platinum "Some Devil" album, and presented a TED Talk. Murmurs and Drones, Lavals third and most recent album, won the popular vote for Best World Traditional Album in the 2012 Independent Music Awards. Laval is also skilled composer, arranger of symphonic scores, and devoted educator.

The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world.  It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts.  

Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music.  As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature.

Tickets are $23 in advance, with a $5 discount for WGBH Members.  If you are a member, send an e-mail to and we will send you the code.

Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!
