An Evening of Scottish Airs and Dances

An Evening of Scottish Airs and Dances

Violinist Jamie Laval and soprano Amber Rose make an exciting musical journey through Scotland, Ireland, and Brittany, evocatively reimagining Gaelic love songs, rustic peasant dances, and recounting mythic tales from the Celtic world.

“One of the hottest fiddlers out there” (Asheville Citizen-Times), Jamie won the U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Championship which launched him to world-wide acclaim in Celtic music. He has performed for Her Majesty the Queen, appeared on Dave Matthews’ platinum Some Devil album, and presented a TEDx Talk on the value of arts and music in our communities. Murmurs and Drones, Laval’s third album, won “Best World Traditional Album” in the 2012 Independent Music Awards. In 2019 Jamie released his latest album, Celtic Christmas: Music for the Deep Midwinter. Jamie is also a prolific composer, arranger, and educator.

With a soaring, angelic voice evoking a fairytale-like quality, Amber Rose is a rising star on the vocal horizon. Equally at home performing opera, oratorio, musical theatre, and folk music styles, Amber recently received the Encouragement Award in the venerated Camille Coloratura Awards (2021) for her performance of Verdi’s “Caro Nome.” Throughout the 2021 season, Amber was a featured artist with the New Hampshire Piccola Opera and performed and recorded regularly with Jamie Laval. She is an ongoing member of the prestigious Taylor Festival Choir (Greensboro, NC) and is a company artist with Moon River Opera (Savannah, GA).

TFAC will follow CDC and Polk County COVID recommendations. Vaccination cards are required. The Artist requests all attendees wear a mask.
