Alasdair Frasier and Natalie Haas.

Get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit with Sound Currents, as we explore music from the Emerald Isle and beyond.

From miles of green on the Emerald Isle to the picturesque Scottish Highlands, all of this week's music is inspired by Celtic Lands, or features a composer from Ireland or Scotland.

This week's guests are Alasdair Frasier and Natalie Haas.
