Brittany Haas hosts the Fiddle Styles Workshop course on Peghead Nation, in which she is joined by some of the best fiddlers in roots music for in-depth instruction and some great performances. She is a founding member of the progressive acoustic band Hawktail, and they have just released their second album, Formations. The band is made up of virtuoso players and composers, with Brittany on fiddle, Paul Kowert on bass, Jordan Tice on guitar, and Dominic Leslie on mandolin, and they poured their talents into creating this album quickly, writing it in two months and recording it in four days, with Chris “Critter” Eldridge collaborating as co-producer. The result is a creative tour-de-force, including the lead-off track “Annbjørg,” which they play in this video. 

You can (and should!) buy or stream Formations now!
