"The partnership of Scottish fiddler Fraser and American cellist Haas does not just bridge the Atlantic, it also links the folk and classical world. Frasers sweet, free spirited playing anchored by Haass contribution, the whole creating a more textured sound than your typical fiddle release.  Highland News

Alasdair Fraser is recognized throughout the world as one of the finest fiddle players Scotland has ever produced. He has been a major force behind the resurgence of traditional Scottish fiddling in his homeland and the U.S., inspiring legions of listeners and learners through his recordings, annual fiddle camps, and concerts. Acclaimed by the San Francisco Examiner as the Michael Jordan of Scottish fiddling, Fraser has a concert and recording career spanning 30 years, with a long list of awards, accolades, television credits, and feature performances on top movie soundtracks including The Last of the Mohicans, Titanic and Stone of Destiny. His vast repertoire spans several centuries of Scottish music and includes his own compositions, which blend a profound understanding of the Scottish tradition with cutting-edge musical explorations. He weaves through his performances a warm and witty narrative, drawing from a deep well of stories and lore surrounding Scotland's musical heritage. Fraser has been sponsored by the British Council to represent Scotlands music internationally, and received the Scottish Heritage Center Service Award for outstanding contributions to Scottish culture and traditions.

Natalie Haas is one of the most sought after cellists in Celtic music today. In addition to her appearances with Alasdair Fraser, she has also toured with Mark O'Connor as a member of his Appalachia Waltz Trio. She and O'Connor premiered his double concerto for violin and cello, ¨For The Heroes¨, with the Grand Rapids, East Texas, and San Diego Symphonies. As a studio musician, Natalie has been a guest artist on over 50 albums, including those of Cape Breton fiddler Natalie MacMaster, Irish greats Solas and Liz Carroll, and Americana icon Dirk Powell. She has also taught at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. A graduate of the Juilliard School, Haas is currently based in Montreal
