Alasdair Fraser & Natalie HaasIndividually, Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas are consummate musicians. Together, they’re pure magic. Scots Magazine has called Alasdair “one of the finest fiddle players Scotland has ever produced; his name is synonymous with the vibrant cultural renaissance transforming the Scottish musical scene.” His richly expressive playing transports listeners across a broad musical landscape including haunting laments drawn from the Gaelic tradition, classically styled airs, and raucous dance tunes, all delivered with sincerity, flawless virtuosity, and the sweetest of sounds. Natalie, a Juilliard graduate, is one of the most sought-after cellists playing traditional music today. She’s toured with Mark O'Connor as a member of his Appalachia Waltz Trio and played as a guest artist on over 50 albums, including those of Irish super-group Solas.
 
Alasdair and Natalie have recorded four scintillating albums together, including their most recent, Abundance. When they collaborate, whether on studio recordings or live on stage, listeners tend to go a little crazy. They just can’t help but gush. In the words of the Boston Globe, “you would think they’d been playing together for centuries. While his fiddle dances, her cello throbs darkly or plucks puckishly. Then she opens her cello’s throat, joining Fraser in soaring sustains, windswept refrains, and sudden, jazzy explosions. Their sound is as urbane as a Manhattan midnight, and as wild as a Clackmannan winter.” Don’t miss this dazzling duo as they reinvent the classic coupling of fiddle and cello, showcasing an intuitive connection and a collective musical genius that brings together the best of tradition and innovation.
