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 (which has just announced the coming release of their sophomore album, Formations) with Paul Kowert on bass, Jordan Tice on guitar, and Dominic Leslie on mandolin, and she has long-running gigs on Live From Here with Chris Thile, with Dave Rawlings Machine, and with other ensembles. In short, Brittany is a leading force in today’s acoustic music world, and regularly shares the studio and stage with the music’s best creative voices.  

So Brittany was right in her element this fall when she played at the Great Lakes Music Camp instructor concert with Joe K. Walsh on mandolin, Darol Anger on fiddle, Missy Raines on bass, Grant Gordy on guitar, and Ethan Setiawan on octave mandolin. This powerhouse band played a beautiful version of the popular Texas fiddle tune “Dry and Dusty,” which Brittany recorded on her 2004 debut solo album. The performance was as a highlight of a night that featured a whole host of great performances, with Brittany and company stretching out and creating a moving and unique take on this well-known tune.
