Music born in the creeks and woods, carried in the cradled fiddle cases of immigrants, handed down from generation to generation… this evening chronicles the journey that American roots music has made, in the artistry of five acclaimed performers. Alasdair Fraser and cellist Natalie Haas are together “a positive joy” (The Scotsman). The music of genre-bending Dirk Powell has been hailed as “charming, reeling, sparing, prayerful and propulsive” (The Washington Post). Fiddlers Jay Ungar and Molly Mason have won fame for their performances on Ken Burns’ The Civil War and Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. “Simple and overwhelming… joyful and full of feeling” (Garrison Keillor).

This concert will run approximately 110 minutes with intermission.

This performance is part of our Storied Strings series. For more concerts in this series and to learn more about the violin in America, visit
