Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (F) Fraser,
Scottish fiddler now on the West Coast, hails
from Clarkmannan and first came to America on a BBC tour. In 1981 he moved
to San Francisco to work as a petro-physicist with British Petroleum. He
had given himself two years in the US, but found there was a steady and
growing demand for the music he was playing. He now runs the Valley
of the Moon Fiddling School and includes in its student body Scots who
travel to the US to learn to play the fiddle in traditional styles. Plays
with Alex Beaton.
