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.
Their time together has seen a number of significant performances: Two BBC Radio Scotland broadcasts, a live BBC Radio 2 performance from the Royal Albert Hall, a live session on Australia’s Radio ABC National, Australia’s National Celtic Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections, and Festival Interceltique de Lorient.
The duo are very interested in collaborative and project working, previous examples of this include:
Air Iomall (see below for details)
Providing music for Findhorn Bay Festival’s site specific theatre production “The Buke of the Howlat”.
Collaborative tours with Josie Duncan and Pablo Lafuente, as well as with Ryan Young and Owen Sinclair.
Currently, the duo are working with Shooglenifty bass player Quee McArthur on an improvised live project.
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, which features their live performance on St Kilda in its entirety.
