jamie lavalONE OF THE premier Celtic violinists on the international music scene today, Jamie Laval creates rapt audiences with his intensely passionate performances of traditional music of Scotland, Ireland, Brittany and Quebec, rendered with hints of classical refinement and ethnic music from around the world.

Jamie 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). The Asheville Citizen-Times writes, “One of the hottest fiddlers out there…this act has been turning heads wherever it plays.”

What sets Jamie’s music in a class by itself is the nuance, virtuosity, and musical craftsmanship he brings to an ancient art form. Simple Celtic folk melodies are transformed into epic tonal narratives which take the listener on an emotional journey from quiet melancholy to wild jubilation.

Jamie’s accessable sound appeals to families, youth, seniors, and devotees of ethnic, jazz, and classical music.

Our guest rooms are all in converted farm buildings behind the main house. We’d much prefer to be less literal – to have you open a creaky old door and be surprised to find the king-size bed, the big Jacuzzi, the gas-log fireplace, the art,  the books – but since you insist …
< Next door to Room 1 behind the stone wall was Doc’s parking space. You may have to duck when you enter the bathroom because we used a great old door that is not standard issue. Anyway, that brings you down to the level of the Lilliputian lavatory in a little antique vanity. Don’t worry, the shower is Brobdingnagian.
