Elizabeth and Ben Anderson, a Celtic fiddle and cello duo, has been gaining an enthusiastic following in the Boston area and throughout New England. Blending Scottish tunes with lively rhythms and innovative harmonies, they create a sound rooted in tradition, inspired by the contemporary, and completely original. On stage, they captivate audiences with their ability to effortlessly communicate musical nuances as only siblings can. They recently opened for the Battlefield Band at the Burren in Somerville, in a concert which will be airing on Brian O’Donovan’s Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio. They have performed at the Boston Celtic Music Festival, the Ossipee Music Festival, the Club Passim Campfire Festival, and in numerous solo concerts and restaurant and club performances.

Elizabeth is a Senior at Berklee College of Music and is a three-time New England Regional Junior Scottish Fiddle Champion, current second place holder in the New England Regional Open Scottish Fiddle Competition, and third-place holder in the 2014 US National Open Scottish Fiddle Championship. Ben is a student at Westborough High School and current second place holder in the New England Regional Junior Scottish Fiddle Competition and third place holder in the National Junior Scottish Fiddle Championship.

“They have taken the influence of people like Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas and really made their own mark on what they are doing in traditional music.”
--Brain O’Donovan, Host of WGBH Radio’s Celtic Sojourn
