Master Scottish Fiddler Alasdair Fraser has been featured on many television and radio shows in the US and UK, including A Prairie Home Companion, The Thistle & Shamrock and The Kennedy Center Honors (CBS TV). His film credits include solo performances on the soundtracks of several major films, including The Last of the Mohicans and Titanic. Fraser has been a major force behind the resurgence of traditional Scottish fiddling in his homeland and the U.S. His richly expressive playing transports listeners across a broad musical spectrum, ranging from haunting laments from the Gaelic tradition to classically-styled airs, raucous dance tunes, and improvisations based on traditional themes.
