Vibrant young cellist Natalie Haas is one of the most sought after cellists in Celtic music today. She tours regularly with master Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser, has appeared on over 50 albums, and has also taught at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. A graduate of the Juilliard School, Natalie is currently based in Montreal.

Welcome to my new site!

Our new CD 'Abundance' is now available to order! You can purchase it online buy clicking on the 'Culburnie Records' logo on the store page.  Also, my first instructional DVD 'Grooves, Backups and Techniques for Celtic Cello' (with special guests Alasdair Fraser and Darol Anger) has just been released! Again, please visit the store page for the link to purchase it (available both in DVD format from Homespun Tapes and also as a direct digital download). Exciting new projects for this year include a tour of Ireland in May with myself & Alasdair and the inimitable Mairead Ni Mhonaigh of Altan, LOTS and LOTS of fiddle camps this summer, a Celtic Colours reunion with Darol Anger, Kimberley Fraser, and Brittany Haas in the fall, and more!

Hope to see you on the road!

-Natalie

    Natalie....you changed my life forever!!!! I first saw you last year 2013 in new hampshire and it was then that I decided I would master the cello. I am 60 years old and never played. I hunted for a cello and a magnificent one and also a teacher. I play every day, mostly celtic and classical. My instructor is amazed, as am I and says I have advanced well beyond most of her 3 yr students. It because I love it!!!! And because of you. Thank you so much for this very special gift! Michael

    After seeing you perform with Alasdiar Frasier in Allegan, Michigan, I was inspired to try my hand at the cello. My first (and only) stringed experience was in the 4th grade. I"m now 66 and bought my first cello. Lessons are going well, thank you for the inspiration

    Thank you for a very memorable evening of music and story at Stone Mountain Arts Center. I want to recommend a movie with some music that I am sure you will like. It's called "The Danish Solution", about the courageous protection of their Jewish population. Best. Ken

    Hi Natalie! We are having so much fun (and a lot of hard work for me) with your transcriptions. Is there any possible way to get the piano part for Miss Laura Risk? It would be the perfect piece (so elegant and nostalgic) for us to play at my mom's 90th birthday in early April. Let me know! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Hi, Natalie - I'm a very beginner fiddler and attended the fabulous workshop with you and Alasdair last weekend on Whidbey Island. One of the most extraordinary moments for me came when we practiced and performed Catriona MacDonald's "Show Me". Between the beauty of this piece and the first-time in my life experience of being part of a symphony of 75 fiddles and cello, I was deeply moved to tears. It truly felt like coming home. The sheer number of us on playing surely amplified the powerful effect it had on me. I was so affected by this experience that I sought to find "Show Me" online as soon as I got home. I found Catriona's release. Wonderful, of course, but I find your/Alasdair's arrangement of this piece to be brilliant. Stirring and evocative, your arrangement would make a phenomenal movie score. Do you have any plans to record it with Alasdair? Thank you for sharing your extraordinary talent and spirit, Natalie. I've gained a new appreciation for the cello as a direct result of your presence at the workshop. Your talent is exceptional and your approachable style and teaching is appreciated. Looking forward to attending another Alasdair/Natalie workshop, with an eye toward one this summer in California and perhaps Scotland in 2015.
