FRIDAY, APRIL 25 Alasdair Fraser &
Natalie Haas Scotlandís premier fiddle ambassador and California cellist present infectious melodies of Celtic Music.
Tickets: $25/adults; $5/children 12 & under
The musical partnership between Alasdair Fraser, long regarded as Scotlandís premier fiddle ambassador, and the sizzlingly-talented young California cellist Natalie Haas may not seem an obvious one. Fraser has a concert and recording career spanning 30 years. Haas wasnít even born when Alasdair was winning national fiddle competitions on the other side of the Atlantic. But this seemingly unlikely pairing is the fulfillment of a long-standing musical dream for Fraser, whose cutting-edge musical explorations took him full circle to find a cellist who could help him return the cello to its historical role at the rhythmic heart of Scottish dance music. Now regularly touring with Fraser and creating a buzz at festivals and in concert halls throughout Europe and North America, Natalie is in the vanguard of young cellists who are re-defining the role of the cello in traditional music.
