Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018 13B ARTS ENTERTAINMENT umas Plumas Arts is pleased to host Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas at the Town Hall Theatre on Friday, Nov. 2. Showtime is 7 p.m. The musical partnership 'between consummate performer Alasdair Fraser, "the Michael Jordan of Scottish fiddling," and brilliant Californian cellist Natalie Haas spans the full spectrum between intimate chamber music and ecstatic dance energy. Over the past 18 years of creating a buzz at festivals and concert halls across the world, they have truly set the standard for fiddle and cen0 in traditional music. They continue to thrill audiences internationally with their virtuosic playing, their near-telepathic understanding and the joyful spontaneity and sheer physical presence of their music. Fraser has a concert and recording career spanning over 30 years, with a long list of Is IO announces concert awards, accolades, radio and television credits, and feature performances on top movie soundtracks (Last of the Mohicans, Titanic, etc.). In 2011, he was inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame. Haas, a graduate of the Juilliard School of Music, is one of the most sought after cellists in traditional music today. She has performed and recorded with a who's who of the fiddle world including Mark O'Connor, Natalie MacMaster, Irish super groups Solas and Altan, Liz Carroll, Dirk Powell, Brittany Haas, Darol Anger, Jeremy Kittel, Hanneke Cassel, Laura Cortese and many more. This seemingly unlikely pairing of fiddle and cello is the fulfillment of a long-standing musical dream for Fraser. His search eventually led him to find a cellist who could help return the cello to its historical role at the rhythmic heart of Scottish dance music, where it stood for hundreds of years before being relegated to the orchestra. The duo's debut recording, "Fire & Grace," won the coveted Scots Trad Music "Album of the Year" award, the Scottish equivalent of a Grammy. Since its release, the two have gone on to record four more critically acclaimed albums that blend a profound understanding of the Scottish tradition with cutting-edge string explorations. In additional to performing, they both have motivated generations Of string players through their teaching at fiddle camps across the globe. General Admission is $25. Plumas Arts members may purchase a discounted $20 admission. Tickets are available at the Plumas Arts Gallery, Quincy Natural Foods and Quincy Provisions.

This year it is Karen Lilly, a Nevada City pencil artist using dried gourds as a canvas. She uses a graphite pencil to freehand objects from the drawing table onto the newly :cleaned surface of the gourd. She then wood burns whatever hard lines are needed before laying in contours with warm : gray colored pencil to shape the subject matter. She then applies layer after layer of colored pencil to achieve the desired effect. Lilly was born and raised in the California Central Valley town of Turlock. After retirement as a high school English teacher in 1998, she began her life as an artist and moved to Nevada City. Her work has been featured in shows at Homewood, Mammoth Mountain and the Horizon Fine Arts Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming. The following quotation illustrates the dedication and emotion that shows itself in Lilly's work. "There's nothing I enjoy more than showing my work and the laborious and loving process that goes into producing each piece of work, especially when it strikes a chord with someone who appreciates art. Truly, I am the luckiest person alive, and my hope is that lots of folk come by to introduce themselves and spend a moment with me." The Mohawk Community Art Fair is a holiday tradition in Graeagle and is held each year at the fire hall the two days following Thanksgiving. This year, the art faire will be held Nov. 23 and 24.
