Legacy of the Scottish Fiddle Vol. 2
"Tunes from the Life and Land of Robert Burns"

Alasdair Fraser(fiddle), Muriel Johnstone (Piano), Natalie Haas (Cello)

This long-awaited second CD in Alasdair Fraser's "Legacy of the Scottish Fiddle" series takes a fresh & richly satisfying look at the fiddle tunes that inspired the songs of Scotland's greatest poet, Robert Burns.

The brilliant trio of master fiddler Alasdair Fraser, renowned Scottish pianist Muriel Johnstone, & rising-star cellist Natalie Haas recreate tantalizing jigs, sweet airs, soul-stirring marches & rousing reels--the music Robert Burns would have used to flirt, dance, sob & sing.

Includes glorious instrumental renditions of "Scot's Wha' Hae", "A Man's a Man for A' That," "My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose," "Green Grow the Rashes O" et al. in their original fiddle versions.

After a highly successful tour of Scotland and new England Alasdair and Natalie Haas will be touring their album Fire and Grace in various locations in the South East and Mid-West US - followed by another short trip to Spain. Hope to see you there!

Alasdair sends greetings to all the folks I met at the various camps I taught at this summer, beginning with the Ceilidh Trails School in Cape Breton, then the Goderich Festival in Ontario, followed by my own Alasdair Fraser Fiddle Course on the Isle of Skye and of course the ever-popular Valley of the Moon camp in California.

Coming up in January 2005 look for details soon on the Alasdair Fraser Fiddle Course to be held once again at the prestigious Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow, Scotland, to be followed by the Mastery of Scottish Arts Winter School at the Seabeck Conference Center near Seattle.

Alasdair and Natalie had a fine trip to Spokane for the Western Arts Alliance convention and would like to thank all those in attendance at the showcase events.
