Fiddle and cello playing traditional Scottish Dance Music.
From the web site " Master fiddler Alasdair Fraser, long regarded as
one of Scotland’s premier musical ambassadors, presents the rich
Scottish fiddle tradition with unsurpassed eloquence, passion and
energy. Fraser and Haas met when, at age 11, Natalie first attended
Alasdair’s Valley of the Moon Scottish Fiddling School in California,
and she began performing in concert with Fraser just four years
later. Natalie has since joined the staff at Alasdair’s several music
courses, including the Valley of the Moon School, at Celtic
Connections and at Sabhal Mor Ostaig on the Isle of Skye.
Currently a student at the Juilliard School in New York, Natalie
regularly performs throughout the US and Europe with Fraser,
and is a member of American fiddler Mark O’Connor’s
Appalachian Waltz Trio."
