Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Hass The musical partnership between Alasdair Fraser, long regarded as Scotland's premier fiddle ambassador, and the sizzlingly-talented young Californian 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).

The duo's two recordings, In the Moment and their debut CD, Fire and Grace - both on Fraser's own Culburnie Records label - are providing a great deal of inspiration to other players. The CDs display the duo's dazzling teamwork, driving, dancing rhythms, and their shared passion for improvising on the melody and the groove of Scottish tunes.

"Haas is the percussive power to Fraser's fiddle fireworks, providing syncopated, bowed underpinnings to his melodies and solos," writes Kira Schlechter of The Patriot News.
