Return to Unity Hall
Unity Hall, Barneveld, NY
Evening of Gaelic love songs, boisterous peasant dances, and mythic tales from ancient Celtic lands. Unity Hall is a classic heritage building built in 1896 by the Unitarian Universalist Church and used continually as a community event center.
U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion Jamie Laval takes his audience on an exciting musical journey through Scotland, Ireland, and Brittany, evocatively reimagining Gaelic love songs, raucous peasant dances, and recounting mythic tales from the ancient Celtic world.
One of the hottest fiddlers out there (Asheville Citizen-Times), Jamie gave a private performance for Her Majesty the Queen, appeared on Dave Matthews platinum Some Devilalbum, and presented a TEDx Talk on the value of arts and music in our communities. Murmurs and Drones, Lavals most recent album, won the popular vote for Best World Traditional Album in the 2012 Independent Music Awards.
