resh Haggis is a dynamic young trio of Scottish and Irish traditional musicians playing a fresh and innovative style of contemporary traditional music. Their shows alternate between stunning, creative arrangements of traditional songs, and fiery tune sets, including many originals. Fresh Haggis began when border piper/singer Elias Alexander and guitarist/singer Eamon Sefton formed a musical bond at sessions and fiddle camps across the city of Boston. They were joined by fiddler Kathleen Parks, who brings dynamic tune playing and luscious harmonies to the group. All three are also members of Bluegrass/Celtic band Cat and the Moon. Fresh Haggis is a vibrant, different take on traditional music from Scotland and Ireland.
