A Fiddler's Feast

Featuring Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas, and Jay Ungar & Molly Mason

“A Fiddler’s Feast” brings two acclaimed duos together for an evening of everything from Scottish dance music to a wide range of American roots genres, and tunes ranging from poignant to sizzling.

Alasdair Fraser has long been regarded as Scotland’s premier fiddle ambassador. His career spans 30 years, and includes a long list of awards, accolades, television credits, and performances on movie soundtracks (Last of the Mohicans, Titanic). Natalie Haas, a graduate of Juilliard School of Music wasn’t even born when Alasdair was winning national fiddle competitions on the other side of the Atlantic. This seemingly unlikely pairing is the fulfillment of a musical dream for Fraser: Finding a cellist who could help him return the cello to its historical role at the rhythmic heart of Scottish dance music.

 Jay Ungar and Molly Mason achieved international acclaim when their performance of Jay’s composition Ashokan Farewell became the musical hallmark of Ken Burns’ The Civil War on PBS. Jay and Molly are musicians of enormous talent who draw their repertoire and inspiration from a wide range of American music styles: 19 century classics, lively Appalachian, Cajun, and Celtic fiddle tunes, and favorites from the golden age of country and swing, along with their own compositions.
