2nd Day of Christmas
As mentioned elsewhere you won't know which concert you'll be seeing today until you tune in. It may be the incredible California siblings Brittany & Natalie Haas but then again it may not.
Brittany is widely regarded as one of the most influential fiddlers of her generation. Now residing in Nashville, TN, she currently performs with her quartet Hawktail (featuring bassist Paul Kowert of Punch Brothers, guitarist Jordan Tice and mandolinist Dominick Leslie), the Dave Rawlings Machine (featuring Gillian Welch), and the house band for Live from Here, hosted by Chris Thile.
Natalie is one of the most sought-after cellists playing traditional music today. She and Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser have toured as a duo for over 18 years, wowing audiences at festivals and concerts worldwide with their unique sound. As a studio musician, Natalie has been a guest artist on over 50 albums, including those of Irish greats Altan, Solas, and Liz Carroll, and Americana icon Dirk Powell.
The Haas sisters have collaborated with each other many times over the years, whether it be appearing on each other’s albums or playing in other people’s bands, but made their first ever international duo appearance at Baltimore Fiddle Fair 2018. We are thrilled to welcome them back virtually for our 12 Days of Christmas!
