Ports of Call

Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas

In cart Not available Out of stock

This album is a mix of original compositions from us both combined with dance tunes from around the North Atlantic - leaving Scotland for a few forays into the fiddle music of Scandinavia, Spain, and France, hence the title, "Ports of Call"! For the most part, we returned to the tried and true duo format in the recording studio; however, we are joined briefly by two special guests, Brittany Haas and Dave Wiesler. We hope you enjoy this, our 5th CD together! - Alasdair & Natalie

    Though COVID prevents travel, my heart will be with you in Moab, UT this weekend. If you guys can make magic in the back of a bar in MA, I cant only imagine the sheer magnitude of the energy you will create in Red Rock ! Have fun and know you are missed.

    I'm just a beginner student in music, but I fell in love with your job. With my simple violin i try to get few notes of your songs. I know that there is a technical gap between us, I can never compare myself to you, but I wanted to say that your songs are motivating to continue my studies. Thank you for giving us the gift of listening to you play.

    I've written the book and lyrics to a musical historical drama that takes place in the 14th Century Brittany. I love Alasdair's music and would like to talk to him about the possibility of composing the music for it. I will be having a zoom reading of it the weekend of Aug 29-30, and would like to invite him to join us to see if he might be interested in doing so. I can be reached at brigidawn@gmail.com or 707-292-9498. I look forward to hearing from him.

    I am at your concert in Denver. Natalie just said she would like a name for an as yet un-named reel. We would suggest "Hopscotch"

    Hi ! I was there on tuesday night - the 26th nov 2019. It was simply wonderful : what beauty, what emotion !!! There's so much love in your music I won't ever forget that moment. Thank you so much. I'm now sure I have something musical to do with my Scottish origins ! <3 PS : enjoy the rest of your european tour, and have a safe trip back home, wherever that is !
