Presented by Albany Entertainment Centre

This seemingly unlikely pairing of fiddle and cello is the fulfillment of a long-standing musical dream for Fraser.

His search eventually led him to find a cellist who could help return the cello to its historical role at the rhythmic heart of Scottish dance music.

The duo's debut recording, Fire & Grace, won the coveted the Scots Trad Music "Album of the Year" award, the Scottish equivalent of a Grammy. Since its release, the two have gone on to record three more critically acclaimed albums that blend a profound understanding of the Scottish tradition with cutting-edge string explorations.

Alasdair Fraser's mastery of the Scottish fiddle combines with the youthful virtuosity of cellist Natalie Haas for a dynamic and captivating show. Natalie's affinity with Scottish melodic nuance, driving rhythms and rich harmonies afford a sparkling interchange with Fraser. Together their performance spans the full spectrum between intimate chamber music and ecstatic dance energy.

"You would think they'd been playing together for centuries. 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
