Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas 10/2/21 7pm

Elley-Long Music Center
223 Ethan Allen Avenue
Colchester, VT 05446

The musical partnership between Alasdair Fraser, long regarded as Scotland’s premier fiddle ambassador, and the sizzlingly-talented Californian cellist Natalie Haas may not seem an obvious one, but the duo’s dazzling teamwork, driving rhythms, and their shared passion for improvising on the melody and the groove of Scottish tunes has helped reconstruct and revive the Scottish tradition of playing dance music on violin and cello. They have toured internationally for over twenty years, wowing audiences at festivals and concerts worldwide with their unique sound and have released six critically acclaimed and award winning albums along the way.

‘We are so excited to get back out there to play some music for you LIVE! We hope to see you safe and sound and get back to doing what we do best – connecting through music, which we all need right now in a BIG WAY! We’re back to our regular tour schedule this fall in the US and Spain.’ (Alastair and Natalie)
