Fiddler Hanneke Cassel returns to the Shedd in Eugene on Friday evening, May 8th, for a trio performance with Christopher Lewis on guitar and Mike Block on cello, who’s performed with everyone from Yo-Yo Ma to Bobby McFerrin and Mark O’Connor. Hanneke Cassel’s trio merges Scottish style instrumentals with influences from the American to the Chinese, and a Chinese saying provides the title to their latest release, Dot the Dragon’s Eyes. They performed live in the KLCC studios.
