The Celtic Colours String Quartet, with Darol Anger, featuring Brittany and Natalie Haas and the amazing Kimberley Fraser.
Quite simply the groovin’est, best-looking string quartet on this planet.
In this rare appearance, Anger, Fraser & the Haas Sisters scorch up their audience in preparation for a featured residency at the famed Celtic Colours Festival in Cape Breton.
This quartet of equally legendary fiddlers will knock off your socks, then wrap you in a warm sonic towel. Repertoire ranges from old-timey head-bangers to deep Cape Breton Celtic, classical & jazz vibes, Scandinavian folk hits and Darol’s famous originals conjuring up Northern California dreams.
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 12 years, wowing audiences at festivals and concerts worldwide with their unique sound. Natalie has been a guest artist on over 50 albums, including those of Cape Breton fiddler Natalie MacMaster and Irish super-group Solas.
Brittany Haas is an American fiddle player. She is a member of the Boston-based alternative bluegrass band, Crooked Still. She was a founding member of Darol Anger's Republic of Strings. Her first CD, Brittany Haas, was released on Ook records in 2004 and includes guest musicians Bruce Molsky, Darol Anger, Todd Sickafoose, Mike Marshall, and her sister, cellist Natalie Haas. She is one of the greatest interpreters of Appalachian mountain fiddle music.
Kimberley Fraser was born on Cape Breton Island, and nurtured within its rich musical heritage. She first began to impress audiences at the age of three with her step-dancing talents. Soon after that she took up both the fiddle and the piano. Since then, Kimberley has built a distinguished career, travelling and performing all over the world from Victoria to Afghanistan.
Exceptional among modern fiddlers for his versatility and depth, Darol Anger has helped drive the evolution of the contemporary string band through his involvement with numerous path-breaking ensembles such as his Republic Of Strings, the Turtle Island String Quartet, the David Grisman Quintet, Montreux, the Duo and other ensembles. Today Darol can be heard on NPR's "Car Talk" theme every week, along with Earl Scruggs, David Grisman and Tony Rice.
