Adept at a variety of fiddle styles, Jamie has performed with some of the great players in Irish, Canadian, and Old Time music.

I have been a collector, performer and teacher of traditional forms of fiddle music from the Celtic countries of Ireland and Scotland, and North America for over 30 years.
