New World Assembly: Scotland meets Québec & Appalachia

Selections to be announced from the stage. 

Event Description: 

Travel through the wilds of the southwest with us and we'll take you on a music and dance journey from the Old World to the New. Traditional fiddle tunes from Scotland cross the Atlantic, stopping first in Québec for a taste of new France, then heading south into the Appalachian mountains where fiddle and dance styles meld with the music of the African slaves to create old-time American music. All these cultures come together as we explore the meeting of tradition and innovation. Your guides are masters of their respective fields: Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas representing Scotland, Yann Falquet of Québec, Brittany Haas, who grew up steeped in the Southern Appalachian fiddle tradition, and Nic Gareiss whose knowledge of international shoe-sounds and grooves traces the roots of American traditional dance.
