Jamie Laval returns...
Returning to the series for just the his second time, U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion Jamie Laval creates rapt audiences with his passionate performances of traditional Celtic music, showcasing his stunning virtuosity, contemporary flair, and uncanny imitation of Highland bagpipes.

Heralded "The next Alasdair Fraser" by the Press & Post Scotland, Laval  performed for Her Majesty the Queen, appeared on Dave Matthews' platinum Some Devil album, and presented a TED Talk on the value of arts and music in our communities. Murmurs and Drones, Lavals most recent album, won the popular vote for Best World Traditional Album in the 2012Independent Music Awards.

An evening concert experience with Jamie combines toe-tapping melodies, foot percussion, an innovative arrangement style, and the recounting of mythic tales to create a beautiful atmosphere of the Scottish Highlands and Brittany.

Check out some tunes of Jamie's work below...
