West Parish Church
129 Reservation Road, Andover, MA 01810
Master fiddler Alasdair Fraser, long regarded as Scotland's premier fiddle ambassador, and Natalie Haas, one of the most sought after cellists in Celtic music today, have represented Scotland at the Smithsonian's Folklife Festival and have been featured on nationally broadcast Performance Today, Thistle & Shamrock, and Mountain Stage. Their critically acclaimed debut recording Fire & Grace won the coveted Scots Traditional Music "Album of the Year," the Scottish equivalent of a Grammy. In recent years Alasdair and Natalie have helped reconstruct and revive the Scottish tradition of playing dance music on violin and cello ("wee fiddle" and "big fiddle"). Alasdair and Natalie will be playing two 45-minute sets at West Parish Church in Andover, MA on December 4 starting at 7:30pm. This is a benefit concert for Permaculture West Parish, which donates 100% of its produce to food pantries in the Merrimack Valley area. Tickets will be sold at the door only if still available the the night of the concert.
