Alasdair Fraser's Sierra Fiddle Camp will celebrate the fiddle music of Scotland and the world with their 4th annual Fiddlers in the Park Picnic Concert. Over 120 musicians, singers and dancers ranging in age from 5 to 85 along with the world-class faculty of camp instructors will celebrate the completion a week of intensive study and revelry with a concert at the beautiful Pavilion at Western Gateway Park.

Renowned performer and master teacher of the rich fiddling tradition of Scotland, Alasdair Fraser inspires self-expression within an embracing community of listeners, learners and like-minded folk. The variety and expressivity of Alasdair's playing is evident in his numerous recordings—from intimate fiddle/guitar duets, to a more contemporary interpretation of tradition, to high energy original tunes with his Skyedance band.

Lesa Terry is at the vanguard of contemporary musical interpretation; an artist whose creative genius consistently brings distinctive innovation to musical performance. After completing a master’s degree in Afro-Latin music at California State University Los Angeles in 2004, this scholar has just completed her forth year at UCLA in pursuit of a doctorate degree in Ethnomusicology.

Hanneke Cassel's approach to music is aptly expressed in the title of her debut album, "My Joy." Alasdair characterized the album as "…fiddle music played with great stylistic integrity and personal flair…" Hanneke's second album, "Some Melodious Sonnet," released in 2004, contains a variety of her own compositions, some hauntingly melodic, others exuberantly energetic. Hanneke has immersed herself in the music of Scotland and Cape Breton for many years and has won three U.S. National Scottish Fiddling championships. She is a graduate of the Berklee School of Music.
