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 it’s 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.
