      Wonderful concert. Their dedication to the Free HEALTH CENTER IN rICHMOND IS very commendable, but thier performance was as good as could be experienced.

      Great concert! I wished the camera could have been closer up! Playing for a fund raiser was a good idea. Hope Natalie's Boo-boo gets better. Thanks for doing this!

      Fantastic! Saw them perform live previously. Not much more to say. Their playing has to be as good as it gets. If there are better Celtic fiddlers and cellists, (solo and duo) anywhere (including Cape Breton and Scotland), have yet to see and hear them. In particular, Natalie's cello playing takes what would typically be a Celtic guitar role to a whole other level. They've set the bar for future performers. Thanks for doing the benefit concert, as well. Looking forward to seeing the two of you in Victoria in the new year (?).

Individually, Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas are consummate musicians. Together, they’re pure magic. Scots Magazine has called Alasdair “one of the finest fiddle players Scotland has ever produced; his name is synonymous with the vibrant cultural renaissance transforming the Scottish musical scene.” Natalie is one of the most sought-after cellists playing traditional music today. She’s toured with Mark O'Connor as a member of his Appalachia Waltz Trio and played as a guest artist on over 50 albums, including those of Irish super-group Solas.

When Alasdair and Natalie collaborate, listeners tend to go a little crazy. They just can’t help but gush. In the words of the Boston Globe, “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.”
