Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas, Scottish Fiddle and Modern Cello
Alasdair and Natalie are the absolute undisputed King and Queen of Scottish music. That may sound like it’s saying a lot, but it understates their influence and talent by a country mile. They can take one ancient tune, and it will sound just like it did when it was played 300 years ago, and then, in the same set, launch into a contemporary Celtic-inspired tune that makes jaws around the world drop. Their music spans the history of the violin. You can talk about Natalie’s Juilliard training, or Alasdair’s world-renown Valley Of The Moon music camp, but it doesn’t begin to describe their influence in contemporary fiddle music. In the Celtic world, they are the gold standard. Sorry, everyone else!
