Colin Fletcher and Jane Griffiths play traditional and original tunes on guitar and fiddle. Their unique style draws on classical, jazz, and folk influences, and their music has been described as ‘stunning’ and ‘spell-binding’.

Jane studied classical violin and piano at the prestigious Chetham’s School of Music before discovering music sessions in Oxford’s infamous Elm Tree pub (since demised), whereupon she decided that it’s much more fun playing music without the dots!

Colin’s musical experiences began in the back seat of a Morris Minor on long journeys to far-flung boggy parts of the British Isles, singing traditional songs with sister Kate and brother Jon. Aged 13, he hid for six weeks and re-appeared having taught himself to play the guitar.

Colin and Jane began playing together after meeting at Oxford’s legendary Catweazle Club. Since then, they have appeared at folk clubs and festivals all over the country, both as a duo and accompanying singer-songwriters Lisa Fitzgibbon, Jon Fletcher, and many others. Colin also played bass with BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner Van Eyken for several years, and Jane has recorded with many well-known musicians including Toni Collette and Maddy Prior. Colin and Jane are also members of highly-regarded Oxford-based band Telling the Bees. Jane also plays with Breton dance trio Wod.

Jane Griffiths and Colin Fletcher released their debut album ‘The Season Field’ in October 2011, through Black Thrustle Records. It is available to buy through Garrett Brown Music at www.garrettbrownmusic.com and directly from Colin or Jane.
