Recognized throughout the U.S. and Britain as one of the premier performers of traditional Celtic 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.
Jamie has just returned from a trip to Dublin, Ireland with a trove of new tunes and tales to bring the charm of the Emerald Isle to life. An evening concert experience with Jamie combines toe-tapping melodies, foot percussion, an innovative arrangement style, and the recounting of mythic tales from antiquity to create a beautiful atmosphere of the Scottish Highlands, Brittany, and Ireland.
“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 TEDx Talk on the value of arts and music in our communities. Murmurs and Drones, Laval’s 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 a devoted educator.
