Location: First Baptist Church / 190 Main St. / Brattleboro VT
On tour in early May to celebrate their latest album, “Abundance,” Scottish fiddler, Alasdair Fraser, and cellist, Natalie Haas, will be performing in downtown Brattleboro at the First Baptist Church on Sunday, May 4. Theirs is a concert that spans the courtly traditions of Scottish music to the boisterousness of the pub with haunting Gaelic laments and airs, raucous dance tunes and improvisations based on traditional and recently composed tunes. Acclaimed worldwide, these two consummate performers are passionate and spellbinding. They have an expressive palette and stunning technical range. The duo carries on musical conversations that weave around each other, support one another and playfully exhort and entertain each other and their audiences.
Fraser is recognized as one of the finest fiddle players Scotland has ever produced and tours and leads workshops and performs with cellist Haas all over the world to great acclaim. Their concerts in Brattleboro are especially meaningful to them because of the community of kindred spirits in this area. This is a concert that will leave you entertained, inspired and uplifted.
Doors open at 6:30 PM. Concert at 7PM / 802-257-1571 for more information
