Celtic fiddler, Laval, performs at TFAC, Oct. 28

Published 9:28am Wednesday, October 24, 2012

One of the hottest Celtic Fiddlers in North America, Jamie Laval will perform with his ensemble at the Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC), on Sunday, Oct. 28 at 3 p.m.
There will be a reception for the performers at the Lanier Library following the show. Tickets are available in advance at either location or at the TFAC Box Office before the show. For more information call 828-859-9535.
Laval, who now lives in Asheville, performs regularly in the area between tours throughout North America and Scotland. Starting out as a classical violinist at the Victoria Conservatory of Music in British Columbia and later working as a professional orchestral musician, and recording artist, he eventually followed his passion for the haunting sounds of Celtic music.  In 2002, after winning the U.S. National Fiddle Championship, he began touring both as a soloist and with other musicians, and now performs around 100 shows a year.
