Piobaireachd / Pipe Music is the startling new recording by piper and multi-instrumentalist Fraser Fifield. It features a collection of tracks recorded following Fifield’s deep re-examination, during lockdown, of what he calls “that ancient, slightly mysterious music associated with the Scottish bagpipe.”

"The entire album is a beautifully considered and masterfully performed listen" - Songlines

"Sit down by a fire late at night with a few close friends who do not feel the need to speak, and stare into the flames, relax your thoughts, and experience 'Piobaireachd / Pipe Music' " pipesdrums.com

"startling reinvention as soprano saxophone, clarinet and whistle swoop and twine around magisterial bagpipe cadences" The Scotsman

"personal enough to satisfy the most questing soul" Living Tradition

This project was supported by Creative Scotland's Sustaining Creative Development Fund.

featuring some very special guests: Sabir Khan - sarangi, Suresh Lalwani - violin and viola, Navin Sharma - tabla and dholak.

Fraser Fifield plays low whistle, border pipes, soprano sax and kaval.

The music was composed by Fraser, except Ewe Wi Crooked Horn which is a traditional Scottish melody. 'Song Of Suresh' composed by Suresh Lalwani and Fraser Fifield.

We recorded at YRF studios, Mumbai, from 16-18 June, 2016, engineered by Shantanu Hudlikar and his team. The mix was made in Scotland by Mattie Foulds. My sincere thanks to the contributing musicians and engineers and also Mujeeb Dardarkar, who played an invaluable role in organising this project, and to Creative Scotland.

Read the Songlines review, https://www.songlines.co.uk/review/in-mumbai

Fatea Magazine review: "Too often, inter-cultural collaborations can become a type of musical manifesto, trying to make a point about the similarities of different musical traditions. "In Mumbai" is never like this. It is a wonderful demonstration of the mutual respect and appreciation of four musicians for each other to make a unique sound that resonates long after the album has ended"

"In his liner note, Fraser Fifield revels in the freedom he and guitarist Graeme Stephen feel from not having to categorise their music. That's easy for him to say. For those who are unfamiliar with Fifield, he's a piper from the Aberdeenshire tradition who has also mastered the low whistle and soprano saxophone, in a way that allows his playing to flow from traditional-sounding airs into the realms of jazz and fairly free improvisation. 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". The Herald.

Jazzwise: "Fifield is 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. On this, his fourth album as leader, the in-demand multi-instrumentalist also shows himself a master programmer and beats adept."

Innovative original compositions, featuring low whistle, Highland pipes, soprano saxophone, Bulgarian kaval, highland hornpipe, practice chanter, keyboards and percussion by Fifield with Alyn Cosker (drums), Graeme Stephen (guitar) Mario Caribe (bass) and Vicky Fifield (strings).

Featuring drummer Stu Ritchie, guitarist Graeme Stephen and the composer Fraser Fifield playing low whistle and soprano sax, this album was recorded over a two day session in 2005, near Edinburgh. The group performed in Scotland and further afield for several years. Alongside original compositions is Lament for the Children by Donald Mor MacCrimmon, also music from Sweden, Ireland and Brittany.

"At once lyrical and radical, playful and soulful, talented and innovative - it’s music that places Fifield somewhere between Michael McGoldrick and Jan Garbarek" ( Sue Wilson,The Scotsman)
