Hanneke Cassel with Ryan McKasson and Cali McKasson Kovin
A native of Oregon, fiddler Hanneke Cassel brings new life and creativity to Scottish folk traditions. Mixing traditional tunes with those of her own composition, Hanneke creates sounds on the cutting edge of acoustic music, while retaining the integrity and soul of the Scottish tradition. Influences from Scotland to China, along with grooves and musical innovations from the hip Boston bluegrass/Americana scene, fuse together in her music to create a uniquely American approach to Scottish music. Says the Boston Globe: "[Her fiddling is] exuberant and rhythmic, somehow both wild and innocent, delivered with captivating melodic clarity and an irresistible playfulness." Hanneke is the 1997 U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion, she holds a Bachelors of Music in Violin Performance from Berklee College of Music, and she has performed and taught across North America, Europe, New Zealand, Australia, and China. Hanneke is joined by friends Ryan McKasson and Cali McKasson Kovin.
