Jamie Laval and Amber Rose: Music in Bass Hall

September 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Jamie Laval and Amber Rose

Fiddler Jamie Laval returns to Bass Hall on September 9 accompanied by vocalist Amber Rose and harpist Liv Castor.

Join us for an evening of Celtic music and mythic tales! 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, rustic peasant dances, and recounting mythic tales from the Celtic world. Joining Jamie is vocalist Amber Rose, whose soaring, angelic voice evokes a fairytale-like quality in ancient airs and ballads. Celtic harpist Liv Castor rounds out the trio, complementing the ensemble with exciting rhythmic vitality and subtle harmonic nuance.

Jamie Laval

“One of the hottest fiddlers out there” (Asheville Citizen-Times) and “The next Alasdair Fraser” (Scotland Press & Post), Jamie 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 the popular vote for “Best World Traditional Album” in the 2012 Independent Music Awards. In 2019 Jamie released his latest album, Celtic Christmas: Music for the Deep Midwinter  to critical acclaim. Jamie is also a prolific composer, arranger, and recording engineer.

Amber Rose

Amber Rose is a rising star on the vocal horizon and a recent finalist in the Metropolitan Opera’s Emerging Artist Competition. Since receiving her master’s degree in vocal performance at the University of North Carolina Greensboro, Amber has performed for the New Hampshire Piccola, Miami, and Greensboro opera companies. Her recent collaboration with Jamie Laval has been receiving rave reviews, both in live and online performances and the pair will be releasing their first album later this year.

Liv Castor

Hailing from Pennsylvania, Liv Castor studied classical concert harp at the Peabody Conservatory of Music. Over time, she began to channel her expertise into her first love, the traditional Scottish lever harp (clàrsach). She studied improvising and Celtic music with several musical luminaries including Maeve Gilchrist.
