Jamie Laval, U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion, will present an Evening of Celtic Music and Stories on Saturday, June 28, 7:30 p.m. at the Historic Stone Cottage, 15 Chestnut St., Tryon.
U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion Jamie Laval creates rapt audiences with his performances of traditional music of Scotland, Ireland, Brittany and Quebec.
An evening concert experience with Jamie and Dan combines toe-tapping melodies, amusing stories, foot percussion and an innovative arrangement style to create an atmosphere of the Scottish Highlands.
Currently making his home in Tryon, Laval grew up in the Pacific Northwest where he received his musical training at the Victoria Conservatory of Music. Laval made his living as a professional symphony musician, recording studio artist, improvising violinist and contra dance fiddler. But his passion for the haunting sounds of rural Scottish folk music eventually usurped all other preoccupations, and he now devotes himself exclusively to Celtic music.
In 2002 Laval won the U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Championship. His touring career includes over 100 engagements per year throughout the U.S. and Scotland.
Laval has appeared on the NBC Today Show, performed on Dave Matthews’ platinum album Some Devil, and gave a private performance for Her Majesty the Queen. Laval’s newest album, Murmurs and Drones, won the popular vote for “Best World Traditional Album” in the 2012 Independent Music Awards.
