One of Scotland's top fiddlers for 20+years, Alasdair plays both traditional and original tunes in the traditional style. For this show he is paired with one of his own top students, Natalie Haas on cello. Natalie studied at Julliard, then studied with Alasdair, and ended up making Celtic music her speciality. They play off each other perfectly with an exceptional sound in concert. This duo has released three excellent CDs, and the 4th, called Abundance, is being released the week of this show, and will be available at the show! their last two CDs including the new one, has guests for Scotland, Ireland and the US. Alasdair has been in Tucson many times over the years, including with his band Skyedance, and was last here with Natalie three years ago in a sold out show in a similar-sized hall.
The Unitarian Church has excellent acoustics, and good sight lines. This show is general admission with doors opening by 7:15pm. The chairs are molded plastic, comfortable, but to a point. If you want a soft surface, we recommend bringing along a small pillow.

Run Boy Run is Arizona's finest acoustic band, having appeared twice on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, the first time at Gammage at ASU. With beautiful three part harmony singing from the three women and exceptional string playing on fiddle, cello, bass, mandolin and guitar, Run Boy Run plays both traditional music and original songs in the traditional style, bridging the gap into Americana and bluegrass music. Run Boy Run won the prestigious band contest at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 2011, and played the festival in 2012. Their first full length CD, So Sang the Whipporwill is now out, plus a shorter EP. www.runboyrunband.com for sound bites and bio information.
They are currently on tour for the summer, all over the US. This show is their return to Tucson, and the first time here in a sit down venue with great acoustics. We are glad to return to the Unitarian Church with this show.

DOORS OPEN BY 7:15pm, show starts at 8:00pm.
