NATALIE HAAS
CELTIC
TRAD

Natalie is one of the most sought after cellists playing traditional music today.

She and Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser have toured as a duo for over 15 years, wowing audiences at festivals and concerts worldwide with their unique sound.

Their first album together, Fire & Grace, was awarded Best Album of the Year in the Scots Trad Music Awards 2004.

Natalie has also toured with Mark O’Connor as a member of his Appalachia Waltz Trio.

She and O’Connor premiered his double concerto for violin and cello, ¨For The Heroes¨, with the Grand Rapids, East Texas, and San Diego Symphonies.

As a studio musician, Natalie has been a guest artist on over 50 albums, including those of Cape Breton fiddler Natalie MacMaster, Irish greats Altan, Solas, and Liz Carroll, and Americana icon Dirk Powell.

A graduate of the Juilliard School, where she studied with cellist Fred Sherry, Natalie discovered the cello at age nine.

In addition to having extensive classical music training, she is accomplished in a broad array of fiddle genres.

Her music journey found purpose when she fell in love with Celtic music at the Valley of the Moon Scottish Fiddling School at age 11.

Inspired and encouraged by director Fraser, she began to investigate the cello’s potential for rhythmic accompaniment to fiddle tunes, and to this day, the two continue to resurrect and reinvent the cello’s historic role in Scottish music.

BRITTANY HAAS
BLUEGRASS
FIDDLE
FOLK

Brittany Haas is widely regarded as one of the most influential fiddlers of her generation.

Born in Northern California, Brittany grew up honing her craft at string camps nationwide, and developed her unique style of fiddling at the influence of her mentors, Bruce Molsky and Darol Anger.

A prodigious youth, Haas began touring with Darol Anger’s Republic of Strings at the age of fourteen.

At seventeen, she released her debut, self-titled solo album (produced by Anger).

Haas continued to tour and record while simultaneously earning a degree in Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University (where she also minored in Music Performance).

It was during her time at Princeton that Brittany was asked to join the seminal “chamber-grass” band Crooked Still, with whom she has made four recordings and toured the world.

Haas has always been a much sought-after collaborator and session musician.

She has performed on Late Night With David Letterman and Saturday Night Live as part of Steve Martin’s bluegrass band, and features on Martin’s Grammy-winning album “The Crow: New Songs for the 5-String Banjo.”

Over the years, she has performed with Bela Fleck, Abigail Washburn, Tony Trischka, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Waybacks, Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas (her cellist sister), and more.
