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

    Hello Alasdair, My Montanan friend and I are big fans of yours and have seen you in Eugene, Oregon. I'm back on my native soil, England, and he's coming to visit, specifically to seek out and play in trad. scottish folk sessions. Do you have any recommendations for the best pub sessions in Scotland? Or regions reknown for them? We are thinking to start in Glasgow and head up the west coast, but are open to any direction for a good session! Thanks so much, in advance, Chanah

    Hi Alastair. I loved your music last night, but didn’t get a chance to meet you afterwards. I would love to talk to you about your visit to my father, Joseph Rashid, in Nevada City in 2007. It was arranged, I think, by The Union for an article about his violin making. There’s still a YouTube video. Will you be playing in the area again sometime soon?

    I wish there was a comprehensive list of the fiddle tunes you've written. I can't think of the name of the one I am thinking of... it starts with the same triplet run up to G as in Off to California.
