Grammy Award-winning cellist Mike Block and Celtic fiddler Hanneke Cassel bring their talents to Lakeland for an intimate performance during LkldLive at Studio B. Through the ISO’s Beth Mason Young Artists Endowment Fund, proceeds from the evening will create scholarships for both the Mike Block String Camp and the Florida Southern College String Camp.

Cassel is a Boston-based performer, teacher and composer who started at a Texas-style fiddler and went on to win the 1997 US National Scottish Fiddle Championship.
