San Miguel Fraser is a project bringing together Galen Fraser (a Berklee graduate and son of renowned Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser) and Maria San Miguel, a native of Castile and graduate of Oviedo Conservatory with deep family roots in the traditions of her homeland. Together they combine dynamic fiddling and string arrangements with Maria's soaring, life-celebrating singing and Galen's exciting, oh-so-sensitive cittern accompaniment. Surprises abound in this project, with fresh compositions and touching, deeply thoughtful arrangements. Their new album Dots of Light sparkles with life and creativity as they explore traditional music from their combined homelands and new compositions in their own unique chamber music style. Notable performances include Celtic Connections, Festival de Ortiguiera, Bellingham Celtic Festival, Bolao Folk, KVMR Celtic Festival, Miguel DeLibes, Aitzina Folk, Valladolid Plaza Mayor, and Tradicionàrius.
