Experience a Celtic Christmas During This Special Seasonal Performance

Celtic Christmas, presented by Jamie Laval, 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. Don’t miss it on Sunday, December 30th at Tryon Fine Arts Center!

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 cast of young, critically praised performers of Celtic harp, woodwinds, guitar, Irish step dancing, and sublime vocals. The cast includes Megan McConnell (vocals), Haley Hewitt (harp), Claire Shirey (step dance), Rosalind Buda (bassoon, bagpipes, bombarde, poetry reading) and performers from Annandale School of Scottish Dance.
