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!

Happy fall everyone! 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 upcoming new projects include a Celtic Colours reunion with Darol Anger, Kimberley Fraser, and Brittany Haas, a mini-trio tour of beautiful new original music by Scandinavian/Baroque specialist Jean-François Bélanger, and finally, early next year, a double bill tour with Boston-based Scottish fiddle and piano duo extraordinaire Katie MacNally & Neil Pearlman with myself and my soon-to-be husband Yann Falquet!

Hope to see you on the road!

-Natalie

    Natalie, you inspired me when I saw you at the Moab Music Festival. You have made me rethink what I could be doing on the bass in sessions. Love the CD. Peter

    Alloha Nathalie. There is a wee venue in southwest Scotland, "Knockvennie Hall", along the Urr River, where the farm workers would come gather the weekends to dance, back in the day before mechanized farming. Most of these wee halls have long-since disappeared, but Knockvennie Hall is still standing. It would be such an awesome place to get to dance to your music and could be an amazing fund-raiser for its maintenance which is an ongoing process. If you might ever consider playing there when you're in Scotland please let me know and I can put you in touch with the folks who could make it happen. I'd gladly fly the 10,000 miles to catch that show. Cheers the now, and jealous of your perhaps being in Scotland for the "Freedom Come all Ye" vote this 18 September.

    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!
