Published: 9/17/2021 11:24:16 AM

The Old Meetinghouse of Francestown’s “Sunday at 4” series will conclude its season on, Sept. 19, with U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion Jamie Laval in an afternoon of ancient Celtic music and mythic tales.

Hailed as “One of North America’s finest practitioners of traditional Scottish music,” Laval will be joined in the performer lineup Eamon Sefton playing Irish-style guitar and Rachel Clemente on Celtic harp. Top students from Laval’s music camp will join the troupe onstage for a rousing finale.

After his music education and early professional work in chamber, opera, and symphony orchestras in the Pacific Northwest, Laval won the U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Championship in 2002 which launched his career throughout the U.S. and Scotland as a devoted performer of Celtic music. He has recorded movie and television soundtracks and collaborated on Dave Matthews’ album Some Devil, and also gave a private performance for Queen Elizabeth II.

Recognized throughout the U.S. and Britain as one of the premier performers of traditional Scottish music on the international music scene today, Laval creates rapt audiences with his passionate, virtuosic performances and engaging storytelling.

Admission is $15 at the door, kids are free.
