About

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 hearken back to the ancient Celtic celebrations associated with the Winter Solstice and Christmas. Headlining the show is North Carolina-based violinist 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. Laval's recent album Murmurs and Drones won the popular vote for "Best World Traditional Album" in the 2012 Independent Music Awards.

Joining Laval is a company of nationally-recognized performers including a bagpiper, Celtic harpist, soprano, and champion Irish step dancer.
