Jamie Laval's Celtic Christmas (NC)


Jamie Laval's Celtic Christmas captures the beauty and atmosphere of Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, and Iceland during the holidays. An entertaining and thought-provoking family holiday experience, the show weaves a tapestry of music, dance, poetry, and stories that hearkens back to the ancient Celtic celebrations associated with the Winter Solstice and Christmas.

Headlining the show is North Carolina-based fiddler and storyteller Jamie Laval who in 2002 won the U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Championship. He has performed for Her Majesty The Queen, appeared on the NBC Today show, and presented a TEDx Talk on the value of the arts in our communities.

Laval's Murmurs and Drones album won the popular vote for "Best World Traditional Album" in the 2012 Independent Music Awards. He recently released his Celtic Christmas album, which is currently available via download and CD from his website

Joining Laval for this holiday presentation are several nationally-recognized performers including a virtuoso Celtic harpist, sublime soprano vocalist, bagpiper, and champion Irish step dancer.
