Charlie Grey and Joseph Peach make music on the piano and fiddle. They are Scottish folk musicians, interested in making music filled with spontaneity, sensitivity and freedom.
Inspiration comes from their pasts and surroundings, feeding music that’s rooted in tradition, whilst stretching its possibilities through improvisation and imagination.
Following the release of their debut album Waves Rise from Quiet Water, the duo reached the finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, and FATEA Magazine’s Instrumental Album of the Year Award.
Notable performances include a live BBC Radio 2 broadcast from the Royal Albert Hall, Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections, and Festival Interceltique de Lorient, as well as making music for theatre in Findhorn Bay Festival’s original production “The Buke of the Howlat”.
2019 sees the release of Air Iomall (Scottish gaelic for “On the Edge”)- a film and suite of new music, inspired by a voyage aboard the tall ship Wylde Swan to some now uninhabited islands deep in the North Atlantic, some of Scotland’s most remote, and remarkable places. The film is centered around the first performance of this new music on St Kilda- the most remote part of the UK, on the 88th anniversary of the evacuation of its native population.
Outwith their duo, Charlie and Joe are members of Tannara, The Iona Fyfe Band, Westward the Light.
★★★★★ “As both composers and players, the duo display enthralling prowess and attunement” - The Scotsman
From Scottish duo Charlie Grey and Joseph Peach, and Filmmaker Hamish Macleod, Air Iomall (Scottish Gaelic for “On the Edge”) is a film and suite of new music, inspired by now uninhabited islands deep in the North Atlantic- some of Scotland’s most remote, and remarkable places.
Travelling aboard the Dutch tall ship Wylde Swan, the duo visited and wrote music inspired by the histories, people, and landscapes of these mysterious, wild places, including: The Shiant Isles, North Rona, The Flannan Isles, Sula Sgeir and St Kilda.
Macleod’s film documents the duo on this once in a lifetime experience, providing a visually stunning, sensitive insight in to these under-documented and enigmatic landscapes. It culminates with a concert of their new music on St Kilda- the most remote part of the UK, on the 88th anniversary of the evacuation of its native population.
Accompanying the film, is the duo’s release of a studio album of the same title, which features their live performance on St Kilda in its entirety.
The project was supported by Help Musicians UK and Creative Scotland.
