Effervescent and engaging, Boston-based fiddler Hanneke Cassel’s style fuses influences from the Isle of Skye and Cape Breton with Americana grooves and musical innovations, creating a cutting-edge acoustic sound that retains the integrity and spirit of the Scottish tradition. While Cassel has established herself as a leader in the contemporary Scottish fiddle scene, this year she embarked on a project with guitarist Yann Falquet to record the traditional tunes that inspired her love for Scottish music. Falquet, who has toured regularly throughout Canada, the U.S., Europe and Australia with Québécois band Genticorum, is a driving, captivating musician who helps breathe life into these old reels, strathspeys, jigs, and airs. The Cassel/Falquet duo show features mostly these tunes from the new album, Over the Sea to Skye.
