Celtic Christmas Tryon - SOLD OUT
Tryon Fine Arts Center, 34 Melrose Ave, Tryon, 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 a nationally-known 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
