The musical partnership between Alasdair Fraser, long regarded as Scotland”s premier fiddle ambassador, and the sizzlingly-talented young California cellist Natalie Haas may not seem an obvious one. Fraser, acclaimed by the San Francisco Examiner as “the Michael Jordan of Scottish fiddling,” has a concert and recording career spanning 30 years, with a long list of awards, accolades, television credits, and feature performances on top movie soundtracks (“Last of the Mohicans,” “Titanic”). Alasdair has been sponsored by the British Council to represent Scotland”s music internationally and received the Scottish Heritage Center Service Award for outstanding contributions to Scottish culture and traditions. Natalie Haas was just 11 when she first attended Alasdair’s Valley of the Moon Scottish Fiddling School in California. She responded to Fraser”s challenge to find and release the cello”s rhythmic soul and four years later, when Natalie was just 15, they played their first gig together. Now regularly touring with Alasdair and creating a buzz at festivals and in concert halls throughout Europe and North America, Natalie is in the vanguard of young cellists who are redefining the role of the cello in traditional music.
