Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas
Tuesday 23rd May 2017 -
“Fraser, one of the most respected of all exponents of the Scots fiddle, would look long and hard to find a more appropriate cellist as a partner. Haas can switch just as effortlessly as Fraser from a gentle singing tone to driving, dancing melody. A positive joy.” ~ The Scotsman
The musical partnership between Alasdair Fraser, long regarded Scotland’s premier fiddle ambassador, and sizzlingly-talented young Californian cellist Natalie Haas may not seem an obvious one. But together the duo’s dazzling teamwork, driving rhythms, and shared passion for improvisation has helped reconstruct and revive the Scottish tradition of playing dance music on violin and cello. They have toured internationally as a duo for over twelve years, wowing audiences worldwide. And with three critically acclaimed, award winning albums to their name, they are quite simply one of the best folk duos on the circuit today.
