TIME:
7:30PM

PRICE:
£15, £13, £6 for schoolchildren

DESCRIPTION:

Haas, on cello, is the percussive power to Fraser’s fiddle fireworks, providing syncopated, underpinnings to his melodies and solos.

This musical partnership between Alasdair Fraser, long regarded as Scotland’s premier fiddle ambassador, and the sizzlingly-talented young California cellist Natalie Haas is the fulfilment of a long-standing musical dream for Fraser who was looking for a cellist who could help him return the cello to the rhythmic heart of Scottish dance music.

Haas, a graduate of the Juilliard School of Music, was only 15 when they played their first gig together.  Today the duo tours the world displaying dazzling teamwork, driving, dancing rhythms, and their shared passion for improvising on the melody and the groove of Scottish tunes.

“Haas is the percussive power to Fraser’s fiddle fireworks, providing syncopated, bowed underpinnings to his melodies and solos,”  The Patriot News
