Fraser Fifield

A compelling instrumentalist, described by the Sunday Herald as (having) “emerged as one of today's outstanding talents” and by Jazzwise magazine, “an outstanding product of the Scottish jazz-folk scene who at one moment can blow a low whistle like Charlie Parker steaming his way through ‘Ko-Ko’ and at the next knock out an air on a sax like a Highland traditionalist”. 

Artists that Fraser Fifield has performed with include Capercaillie, Salsa Celtica, Old Blind Dogs, Afro Celts, Karen Matheson, Aly Bain, Grit Orchestra, Red Note Ensemble, Sam Lee, Zakir Hussain

Songlines magazine commented upon on, 'Stereocanto', “ it’s the interplay between intellectual construction, fleeting modal improvisations and sheer emotional sensuality of the music that makes this such a satisfying, and strikingly unified, piece of work”, while added, more recently: "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". 

A multi-instrumentalist, Fraser plays highland pipes, border pipes, low whistles, soprano saxophone and kaval. 

"At heart, Fifield is a melodist and his gifts as such are here in abundance - filed under adventure!" The Herald
