WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST and COMPOSER, FRASER FIFIELD
whistle, bagpipes, saxophone, composing, improvising
Fraser Fifield is one of the most creative musicians to have come through the Scottish tradition. Originally a piper, he has adapted the skills and phrasing he developed through his training in piping and transferred them onto saxophone, clarinet, low whistle and the Bulgarian end-blown flute, the kaval. His low whistle playing has drawn special praise for its fluidity and deep sense of expression and has led to work internationally with some of the world's leading musicians, including Indian percussion master, Zakir Hussain, and recordings with top players from Argentina, Bulgaria and the Netherlands as well as the UK. Fraser is an asset to any band and his work recently with the Scottish-Dutch-Indian group Lolanders rightly earned enthusiastic reviews at Celtic Connections and acclaim at Amsterdam's legendary venue, The Bimhuis.
