A shining debut by Boston-based fiddler, singer & composer GALEN FRASER, who blends passion & playfulness in all-original tracks that display his Scottish & American heritage, a life of immersion & exploration in the fiddle music of many lands, & his sojourn in the rich environment of Berklee College of Music.

Galen (fiddle, octave violin, vocals & piano) is joined by the stellar talents of Alasdair Fraser - fiddle, Natalie Haas - cello, Neil Pearlman - accordion, Jenna Moynihan - fiddle, guitarists Conor Hearn, Colin Cotter & Eamon Sefton, & fellow Berklee grads Nacim Ortiz, Ryan Scalia, & more. Some of Galen’s tunes are already fixtures in fiddle sessions across North America & in Scotland; “Mischief Managed" is sure to establish many more, & bring accolades to an up-&-coming major talent.”

Legacy of the Scottish Fiddle, Volume 2
Tunes from The Life and Land of Robert Burns

Alasdair Fraser (fiddle), Muriel Johnstone (piano), Natalie Haas (cello)

The project was inspired partly by the comprehensive book The Songs of Robert Burns by James C Dick, published in 1903. The author meticulously sets the historical and social context of Burns' work, and re-connects his lyrics to the melodies that Burns had intended. The published collections of Burns' day became the basis for selecting tunes for this recording.

Alasdair & Natalie TOUR SCHEDULE

Labyrinth "Alasdair Fraser, and his trusty ensemble, have produced yet another amazing album of virtuoso music. Skyedance is a group that excels with talent, warmth and joy. They play together as if they are speaking to each other, with a combination of affection and aggression. Full of contemporary style and romanticism, they are unique and original in their approach to arrangements of original as well as traditional compositions. It is stunning to hear a group of such caliber. The recording itself is highlighted by an extreme spectral clarity and separation of instruments. It is very much as if you were sitting with the ensemble around you." 
—Ben Kettlewell, Alternate Music Press

Labyrinth from the band Skyedance, whose members feature on soundtracks such as Titanic, Braveheart and Last of the Mohicans, interweaves Scottish roots with influences from around the world, threading the path of discovery with melodic, harmonic and rhythmic interplay.
