Alasdair Fraser And The San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers Perform At Harris Center April 16

Picture the Harris Center for the Arts stage filled with 50 fiddlers backed by piano, drums, cellos, guitars, harps and even a harmonica, projecting a sound lively as a dance band, as majestic as a symphony orchestra.

Front this merry group of music-makers with Scottish master fiddler Alasdair Fraser, whose humor, passion and charismatic playing set the tone, and you’ll have a rough idea what it’s like to attend a concert with The San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers.

It’s an evening packed with tunes, songs, and dances. The Anchorage Daily News raves “. . . this performance was a raucous, extemporaneous sampling of authentic music from the highlands and islands of Scotland.” 

This group has been known to create such a two-way sense of fun and joy between musicians and audience that people spontaneously get out of their seats and dance in the aisles whether or not they know the steps to the jigs and reels pouring forth from the stage.

Founded in 1986 by Alasdair and friends, the group has grown to over 200 members from all over Northern California, the US and beyond. Varying widely in age and backgrounds, the fiddlers are drawn together by their love of Celtic traditional music. Prized in the group is the ability to play by ear, to feel the music deep in one’s soul, and be enough in the moment to follow spontaneous changes of direction during performances.

Alasdair Fraser, musical director of the group, ranks among the finest interpreters of Scotland’s music; his playing has earned worldwide critical acclaim. He maintains a busy performing schedule with musicians such as cellist Natalie Haas, guitarist Tony McManus and pianists Paul Machlis and Muriel Johnstone. He is the director of the Valley of the Moon Scottish Fiddling School in California, where he teaches every summer, and has been artist-in-residence at the prestigious Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow for the past several years. His music is widely available on CD, and can also be heard on movie soundtracks from Titanic, The Last of the Mohicans, Wyatt Earp, Spitfire Grill and Treasure Planet.

Alasdair Fraser and the San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers will perform on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are priced at $19-$29; Premium $39; Students/Children 12 and under $12. Tickets are available online at or from Harris Center Ticket Office at 916-608-6888 from 10 am to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket. Harris Center is located on the west side of Folsom Lake College campus in Folsom, CA, facing East Bidwell Street.

Today Is National Walking Day–American Heart Association Encouraging Americans To Get Moving!

Today, Wednesday, April 2nd, is National Walking Day and the American Heart Association is encouraging Americans and Sacramentans to lace up for their heart and get moving!

On National Walking Day, a day where hundreds of thousands across the nation take steps to improve their health, Americans are encouraged to spend at least 30 minutes of their day briskly walking.

“Statistics show that one in two men and one in three women are at risk for heart disease, and research shows that poor lifestyle is a major contributor,” said Bruce Scheidt, 2014 Sacramento Heart & Stroke Walk Chairman and managing partner at Kronick, Moskovitz, Tiedemann & Girard. “We at Kronick are planning a walk around Capitol Mall and I encourage all Sacramento residents to walk with their families and enjoy the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle.”

Americans are spending more time than ever sitting in front of screens – at work and at home –which means less time being active. Physical inactivity has a detrimental effect on your health. Studies have shown that inactive people can double their risk of heart disease.

Whether it’s walking, running, biking, playing sports or joining a group class, the goal is getting more active!

The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes of physical activity weekly for adults, and 60 minutes a day for kids.
