Fraser and graeme are well known in folk and jazz circles in their native Scotland as musicians with a unique sound and approach. Both originate in the North-East part of the country and have worked together since their early 20s, honing a unique mix of tradition and improvisation with live electronics and instrumental virtuosity.
“Stephen and Fifield have been playing together for many years and know each other’s music and style intimately; together they produce some remarkable music.” (London Jazz News)
“super-fluent and expressive low whistle playing borne on Stephen’s keenly inventive guitar rhythms, suggestions of the cafes of Andalusia and gypsy weddings of eastern Europe, all the while retaining the spontaneity of the jazz ethos” (Herald)
Fraser performs on low whistle, saxophone, and bagpipes, has released 8 critically acclaimed solo albums since 2001 and has performed worldwide with artists such as Salsa Celtica, Old Blind Dogs, Grit Orchestra, Karen Matheson and many more.
“To call a musician’s work ‘unique’ is a bold statement. However, if any musicians come close, then Fraser Fifield would be among them. The originality of his work, the breadth of his inspiration, scope of invention and variety of instruments he uses to create his music make him unique, and one of Scotland’s most enthralling artists” – (Folkradio.co.uk)
Graeme Stephen has played with many of the greatest jazz musicians who visit Scotland, has lead ensembles of all size and description in performing his original compositions and is one of Scotland’s most accomplished guitarists.
“Stephen’s music speaks loudly of ambition, imagination, nous, and harmonic adventure yet teemed with the sort of tuneful realisation that swells the heart” (The Herald)
