If you like fiddlin’, you’ll love "A Fiddler’s Feast," coming to Kent
on February 26. Sponsored by the Kent Spotlight Series, "A Fiddler’s
Feast" brings two acclaimed duos together. Alasdair Fraser and Natalie
Haas, along with Jay Ungar and Molly Mason deliver everything from
Scottish dance music to a wide range of American roots genres, and tunes
ranging from poignant to sizzling.
Alasdair Fraser has been called "the Michael Jordon of Scottish
fiddling" by the San Francisco Examiner. His concert and recording
career spans 30 years, with a long list of awards, accolades, television
credits, and performances on movie soundtracks (Last of the Mohicans,
Titanic). Cellist Natalie Haas, a graduate of Juilliard School of Music,
has helped Fraser return the cello to its historical role at the
rhythmic heart of Scottish dance music.
Jay Ungar and Molly Mason achieved international acclaim when their
performance of Ashokan Farewell became the musical hallmark of Ken
Burns’ The Civil War on PBS. Jay and Molly are musicians of enormous
talent who draw their repertoire and inspiration from a wide range of
American music styles.
"A Fiddler’s Feast" will be held at the Kent-Meridian High School Performing Arts Center at 10020 SE 256th St., Kent. Parking is free.
Tickets range from $15 to $28. Tickets can be purchased online, by phone by calling 253-856-5051, or by going to the Kent Commons (525 4th Ave. N.) during normal business hours Monday through Saturday.
