The musical association between the prestigious Alasdair Fraser, considered the best Scottish violinist, and the brilliant Californian cello Natalie Haas, spans the entire spectrum between intimate chamber music and the energy of static dance. Over the past 18 years, with great success, they have established a benchmark for violin and cello in traditional music.

Fraser has a career of more than 30 years of concerts and recordings, with a long list of awards and recognitions, has participated in numerous radio and television programs and has collaborated in soundtracks of the best films such as “The Last Mohican” and “Titanic”, among others. In 2011, she was inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame.

Haas, a graduate of the Juilliard School of Music, is one of the most sought-after cellists in traditional music today. She has performed and recorded with some of the world’s leading violin players including Mark O’Connor, Natalie MacMaster, the famous Irish groups Solas and Altan, Liz Carroll, Dirk Powell, Brittany Haas and many more.

The work of the duo’s debut, “Fire & Grace”, was awarded the coveted “Album of the Year” award for Scottish music, the Scottish equivalent of Grammy awards. Since their release, both have released four critically acclaimed albums. In addition to performing, Alasdair and Natalie have motivated generations of musicians through their teaching on violin campuses around the world. Currently, both are immersed in the presentation of their latest work “Ports of Call”.
