The Garage on 25 presents master fiddler and storyteller Jamie Laval in an evening of Celtic music and mythic tales.
Recognized throughout the U.S. and Britain as one of the premier performers of traditional folk 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. “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 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 devoted educator.
The evening will feature toe-tapping melodies, traditional folk songs, and the recounting of amusing stories that help recreate the beautiful atmosphere of ancient Celtic lands.
