More Information

Homegrown Concerts from the Library of Congress presents Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas for an afternoon of Scottish Music for fiddle and cello. Alasdair Fraser has long been regarded as one of the greatest Scottish fiddlers playing today. His duo with Californian cellist Natalie Haas has helped reconstruct and revive the Scottish tradition of playing dance music on violin and cello, incorporating driving rhythms and improvisation into their interpretation of Scottish melodies. Together, the duo of Fraser & Haas has toured internationally for more than 18 years to great acclaim at festivals and concerts worldwide. They have released five critically acclaimed and award-winning albums. Though they are physically separated for now, they will play together for Homegrown through the magic of technology!
