At Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center
Award-winning duo Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas once again unleash their dazzling teamwork, driving, dancing rhythms, and shared passion for taking the infectious melodies and grooves of Scottish/Celtic music on an exciting new journey. Scottish master fiddler Alasdair Fraser has been a major force behind the resurgence of traditional Scottish fiddling in his homeland and the U.S. Juilliard grad Natalie Haas is one of the most sought after cellists in traditional music. She has toured with Mark O’Connor’s Appalachia Waltz Trio, and is a guest artist on over 50 albums by Natalie MacMaster, Irish greats Altan, Solas, and Liz Carroll, and Americana icon Dirk Powell. Fraser and Haas have toured as a duo for over 15 years. Their richly expressive playing transports listeners across a broad musical spectrum, ranging from haunting laments from the Gaelic tradition to classically-styled airs, raucous dance tunes, and improvisations based on traditional themes.
