*CANCELED* Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas Live Tuesday, February 12th between 3 & 4pm
Twice a winner of the esteemed Scottish National Fiddle Championship, Alasdair Fraser is known as "the Michael Jackson of Scottish fiddling": what more needs to be said? Natalie Haas grew up in California and fell in love with Celtic music in middle school, and has worked with the likes of Altan, Solas, & Natalie MacMaster, as well as Mark O'Connor. The two have been forging a dynamic union of music for some 18 years now. "While his fiddle dances, her cello throbs darkly or plucks puckishly. Then [Haas] opens her cello's throat, joining Fraser in soaring sustains, windswept refrains, and sudden, jazzy explosions. Their sound is as urbane as a Manhattan midnight, and as wild as a Clackmannan winter." (Boston Globe). We're thrilled to welcome them to Studio B on their way to Charlotte for a Tuesday evening performance.
