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

Published 9:28am Wednesday, October 24, 2012

His recordings have received critical acclaim and his most recent CD, “Murmurs and Drones,” was voted “Best World Traditional Album” by Independent Music Awards.  The Scottish music magazine “FiddleOn” said “A new star for the old world, Jamie Laval is a fiddler of subtlety, complexity and passionate intensity, an engaging entertainer who will undoubtedly create a rapt audience wherever he goes.  His performances are replete with dazzling improvisations and neatly stitched together.“
“Sing Out Magazine” said of him: Subtle and energetic at the same time … One can only gasp in admiration.”
Laval played to packed audiences last year at the Lanier Library so they are bringing him back to the spacious Fine Arts Center for this year’s show.  Seating is open, so come early for the best choice.  The show is a benefit for the Lanier Library.
