DuoDuo Quartet: Natalie Haas, Maeve Gilchrist, Yann Falquet & Nic Gareiss
The extraordinary cellist Natalie Haas joins Edinburgh harpist and singer Maeve Gilchrist, Quebecois musician Yann Falquet, and percussive dancer Nic Gareiss, in an exciting program of song and dance. DuoDuo Quartet showcases the intimacy of each duo as well as the powerful collaboration between all four.
Natalie is one of the most sought-after cellists in Celtic music today, well-known for her 18-year collaboration with Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser, wowing audiences at festivals and concerts worldwide. Her husband, Yann Falquet is one of the most creative acoustic guitarists in today's Québécois music scene, having toured the world with French Canadian power trio Genticorum. In the last few years, Natalie and Yann have performed as a duo, playing a mix of Quebecois traditional songs and new takes on western European folk music.
Like Natalie, Maeve's innovative approach to her instrument stretches its harmonic limits and improvisational possibilities. She has appeared at many major venues and festivals including the Tanglewood Jazz festival, the World Harp Congress in Amsterdam and the opening of the Scottish Parliament. Maeve and percussive dancer Nic Gareiss made their duo debut at Celtic Connections in Glasgow. The Boston Herald calls Nic "A show-stopper...the most inventive and expressive step dancer on the scene. The nimble Gareiss called forth visions of Fred Astaire." He has performed with many luminaries of contemporary traditional music, including The Chieftains, Darol Anger, Solas, Liz Carroll, and Bill Frisell.
