Season's Greetings and many thanks for all the great support during our many concerts and workshops in 2007.

Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas NEW CD
In the MOMENT

Bringing a Fresh Sound to an Old Tradition
"Traditional music has always been a connective tissue between cultures, communities, and generations. Witness the duo of Scottish fiddle star Fraser and cello prodigy Haas. He is from Clackmannan, a small town in Scotland's smallest county. She is a Juilliard grad from California. When they met, he was teacher, and she was student. And yet on a new CD, "In the Moment," you would think they'd been playing together for centuries. While his fiddle dances, her cello throbs darkly or plucks puckishly. Then she 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." Scott Alarik, Boston Globe

WGBH’s A Christmas Celtic Sojourn with Brian O’Donovan an intimate sharing of Christmas music, songs, dancing, poetry and stories to warm the winter nights.

Highland, Heath and Holler "Celtic Music's Voyage to Appalachia"


The exciting new collaboration kicks off 2008 in the beautiful Strathmore Hall in Maryland. Featuring fiddlers
Alasdair Fraser, Martin Hayes and Bruce Molsky, with Natalie Haas on cello and Dennis Cahill on guitar...

"The early Scottish and Irish immigrants who filtered into southern Appalachia brought with them their culture, their stories and their music. Their ballads, jigs, reels and rowdy tunes served as a foundation of what we know as the unique musical heritage of the region. Highland, Heath and Holler celebrates and documents this remarkable cultural transference with musicians who are both steeped in their own traditions and far reaching in their artistic world views."
