Celtic Christmas Charlotte
Fullwood Theater, Matthews Community Center, 100 W McDowell St, Matthews, NC
Jamie Laval’s Celtic Christmas captures the beauty and atmosphere of Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, and Iceland during the holidays, weaving a tapestry of music, dance, poetry, and stories that hearken back to the ancient Celtic celebrations associated with the Winter Solstice and Christmas. An entertaining and thought-provoking family holiday experience.
Headlining the show is Asheville-based violinist and storyteller Jamie Laval. In 2002 Laval won the U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Championship, performed for Her Majesty The Queen, and presented a TED Talk. Laval’s recent album Murmurs and Drones won the popular vote for “Best World Traditional Album” in the 2012 Independent Music Awards.
Jamie will be joined by an acclaimed cast of Celtic performers as follows:
• Rosalind Buda bassoon, beloved Asheville performer of bagpipes, bombarde, bassoon, poetry readings • Megan McConnell, angelic soprano voice, appeared in numerous operas • Claire Shirey, Irish step dancer from Atlanta who won several dance competitions in Ireland
