LANDERMASON are the combined talents of multi-instrumentalist Fiona Lander (vocals, piano, whistles, saxophones, clarinet and recorder) and finger style guitarist / singer Paul Mason.
Together they present a fabulous and varied show which combines both traditional and contemporary folk with jazz, classical and other styles. Their own self penned material interspersed with striking arrangements of traditional classics provide a lovely contrast for an audience.
They have been writing, recording and performing together for over ten years and have produced 6 albums on their own label LAMA Records. They have had national airplay on on BBC Radio 2 (Bob Harris) and Radio 3 (Lucy Duran) as well as on many other radio stations across the network. Their arrangement of ‘Dance to Your Daddy’ was featured on BBC 1’s Antiques Road Show.
Landermason have performed at some of the best known music venues on the UK circuit including Cambridge Folk Festival, Edinburgh Fringe, Celtic Connections, Wales Millennium Centre, The Sage Gateshead plus a host of other festivals, small theatres, clubs, pubs and village halls. They have also toured in France, Germany and the Netherlands.
