Artist Bios:

"One of the hottest fiddlers out there, this act has been turning heads
wherever it plays", reports the Asheville Citizen-Times.

Laval's unique approach to traditional Celtic music blends the simplicity of
an ancient art form with stunning virtuosity and contemporary flair that
resonates with families, youth, seniors, and devotees of ethnic, jazz, and
classical music. Originally a Northwest resident, Laval now resides in North
Carolina and tours nationally with over 120 engagements per year. He is
heralded as "One of North America┬╣s finest practitioners of traditional
Scottish music" (San Jose Mercury News) and "The next Alasdair Fraser"
(Press and Post). Laval serves on the faculty of The Swannanoa Gathering.

Guitarist Zac Leger presently resides in Los Angeles. He tours with the
Eileen Ivers Band and Celtic Crossroads and is equally respected for his
stunning playing of Uillean pipes, whistle, and the Irish Bouzouki. Last
year Zac won the All-Ireland Championship for piping.

Jamie and Zac will present a 2-hour program of traditional music from around
the Celtic diaspora, including Scotland, Ireland, Bretagne, Galicia, Quebec,
and Appalachia.

Dr. Mierzwiak: Well, technically speaking, the procedure is brain damage.
