SHOWCASING equal measures of fiery Celtic fiddle and masterful classical violin, two mesmerizing performers delve deeply into the soul of ancient Scotland, Ireland, and Brittany while embracing the power of contemporary string virtuosity.

Internationally acclaimed master fiddler Jamie Laval teams up with one of Britain’s pre-eminent classical violinists Rosemary Warren-Green for a performance of Laval's unique compositions at Eastgate Theatre on Sunday, November 4 at 7pm.

Laval's bold, new works are based on traditional folk melodies and delve deeply into the soul and aesthetic of ancient Celtic music while embodying the prowess of the celebrated violinists.

Rosemary (Furniss) Warren-Green began her career as a protégé of Sir Yehudi Menuhin and went on to become one of Great Britain's pre-eminent concert violinists.

She has been a guest soloist with the Philharmonia Orchestra, Hallé, Singapore Symphony, London Chamber Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and the Royal Philharmonic.

Rosemary currently serves as principal viola with the London Chamber Orchestra and is a devoted educator. Her teaching posts have included the Menuhin School, the Royal College of Music, and Davidson College. Rosemary is the founder of a flourishing, London-based educational program called Music Junction, which empowers children from disparate backgrounds to explore, experience, and perform music from around the world and share this music with their communities.

Jamie Laval is a critically-acclaimed performer of Celtic roots music.

Praised by The Herald Scotland as a “communicator” and “virtuoso” (Rob Adams, The Fringe), Jamie calls upon his foundation in classical music to inform his singular dedication to folk music. His performance style captures the pathos and perspective of Celtic peoples, drawing upon his astonishing violinistic prowess, uncanny imitation of Highland bagpipes, innovative arrangement style, and the recounting of atmospheric mythic tales. Jamie performed for Her Majesty The Queen and presented a TEDx Talk on the value of arts and culture in our communities.

The performance is a culminating event of a weekend-long symposium sponsored by Nomad Beat Community Music School.

Students of the course will be invited on stage with Jamie and Rosemary to perform a specially-prepared piece during the concert.
