7:30 pm - 10:00 pm doors at 7:00 pm
Presented by: Ceri Osborne
The musical partnership between Alasdair Fraser, long regarded as Scotland's premier fiddle ambassador, and the sizzlingly talented young California cellist Natalie Hass are in Victoria for one night only. This concert is part of Alasdair & Natalie's "ABUNDANCE" CD release tour.

“ … you would think they’d been playing together for centuries. While his fiddle dances, her cello throbs darkly or plucks puckishly. Then [Haas] opens her cello’s throat, joining Fraser in soaring sustains, windswept refrains, and sudden, jazzy explosions. Their sound is as urbane as a Manhattan midnight, and as wild as a Clakmannan [Scotland] winter.”
— Boston Globe

“Fraser, one of the most respected of all exponents of the Scots fiddle, would look long and hard to fi nd a more appropriate cellist as a partner. Haas can switch just as eff ortlessly as Fraser from a gentle singing tone to driving, dancing melody. A positive joy.”
—The Scotsman

Opening guests for the evenings concert will be the new up and coming youth string ensemble, "Coastline" under the direction of Ivonne Hernandez.
