The ArtsCenter, in partnership with Sonic Pie Productions, presents Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas, November 6.

Recommended for fans of: Last of the Mohicans soundtrack (that’s Alasdair!) Fraser and Hass captivate with cutting-edge fiddle and cello explorations of Scottish and global music. This seemingly unlikely pairing of fiddle and cello is the fulfillment of a long-standing musical dream for Fraser. His search eventually led him to find a cellist who could help return the cello to its historical role at the rhythmic heart of Scottish dance music, where it stood for hundreds of years before being relegated to the orchestra. The duo’s debut recording, Fire & Grace, won the coveted the Scots Trad Music “Album of the Year” award, the Scottish equivalent of a Grammy. Since its release, the two have gone on to record three more critically acclaimed albums that blend a profound understanding of the Scottish tradition with cutting-edge string explorations. In additional to performing, they both have motivated generations of string players through their teaching at fiddle camps across the globe.
