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.

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.
