Jamie Laval to play Celtic fiddle music Sunday Oct 1, San Diego


Recommended Posts

If you like hearing a really good Celtic fiddler, United States Scottish fiddling champion Jamie Laval is giving a recital this Sunday at 4 p.m. in the Kensington area of San Diego (in a private home). Tickets are $24 and available at Kensington Video. More information on the concert is available at:


P.S., I have no association with this concert except for the fact that I like Scottish fiddle music and that I plan on going to enjoy it.

The last thing traditional music needs is to be approached with the grace of a trained violinist.

I would respectfully disagree with that statement. If violinists playing "traditional" music only listened to the scratchy old fiddlers with poor tone playing out of tune, then the tradition would surely die. In a sense the tradition is still evolving and fiddlers who play with the style and sense of Jamie Laval are helping that along just fine. Jamies roots are in the Scottish tradition and in that idiom there is a long history of musicianship that goes hand in hand with the tradition.
