Fire & Grace—Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas
Dazzling teamwork and driving, dancing rhythms mark this dynamic release of this award winning Scottish fiddler and brilliant young cellist. “The cello was traditionally the back-up instrument to the fiddle in Scottish dance ensembles, into the 20th century,” says Fraser, “and it has long been one of my goals to put the cello right back there, at the rhythmic heart of Scottish music."
