Unity Hall presents nationally-recognized master fiddler Jamie Laval in an acoustic concert of Celtic music and storytelling. In addition to his fiddle wizardry and irresistible groove-making, Laval will also recount ancient mythic Celtic legends.
As a U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion, Jamie Laval creates rapt audiences with his passionate, virtuosic performances, uncanny imitation of Highland bagpipes, and engaging stories. Dubbed "One of the hottest fiddlers out there," (Asheville Citizen-Times), 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 album, Murmurs and Drones, won the popular vote for “Best World Traditional Album” in the 2012 Independent Music Awards.
“I am excited to make my Central New York debut at Unity Hall,” says Laval. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to play in this unique and intimate venue. I love sharing the magic of ancient Celtic music in such an historic atmosphere."
Celtic music is known for its toe-tapping rhythms, bouncy jigs, and galloping reels. Jamie promises an evening of both the warmly familiar and the bracingly surprising in this program themed towards Celtic music from Brittany, the Gaelic-speaking region of France.
