Fraser Fifield & graeme stephen

"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)

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.” - patrick hadfield

In Graeme Stephen, he has the ideal partner and, over 16 years, they have forged an understanding that means wherever one goes the other will join him intuitively, be that into a moving lament or the kind of electric guitar and Border pipes ferment witnessed on Chase It Catch It that, if he were that sort of bloke, might see Fifield with his foot up on a monitor, posing like a heavy metal hero. At heart, Fifield is a melodist and his gifts as such are here in abundance - filed under adventure” - Rob Adams
