“Music is the universal language of mankind’ is a sentiment that Alasdair Fraser lives from the tips of his fiddle-playing fingers right down to the marrow in his bones. Raised in Scotland in a time when traditional music and language were suppressed, Fraser has spent his adult life in Northern California reclaiming his culture and hosting multi-generational music camps in three countries. His unconventional style of teaching gives people permission to explore their own voices and tap into the rhythmic undercurrent at the root of music and identity—be it individual, cultural, or globally human. Whether you’re a musician, a fan of traditional Scottish music, or someone who simply appreciates sincere, joyful artistic expression, pull up a chair (or put on your dancing shoes) and join the cèilidh!” – Mill Valley Film Festival (2016, 60 min.)
Filmmaker Tommie Dell Smith will be here Friday night only to introduce the film and answer questions after the screening.
