‘Landermason’ are a duo like no other! Multi instrumentalist Fiona Lander (vocals, piano, whistles, saxes, clarinet and recorder) and Paul Mason (guitar, ukulele and vocals) have developed a unique sound which displays their undoubted talents. They combine both traditional and contemporary folk with jazz and other styles in their beautiful compositions and striking arrangements.
They have recorded and produced 6 studio album’s, an EP and a charity single to date on their own label LAMA Records and have enjoyed airplay on BBC Radio 2, 3, 4, BBC World Service, BBC Scotland and Wales together with many other local and internet radio shows across the network. Their version of ‘Dance to Your Daddy‘ was used in an episode of BBC 1’s Antiques Road Show, whilst their track ‘Somalia‘ was featured in a BBC 3 documentary narrated by Scarlett Johansson called Escape From The Worlds Most Dangerous Place. They were commissioned to write an original sound track for The Pied Piper of Hamelin, a puppet show staged at the Up-Front Puppet Theatre in Cumbria, based on Michael Morpurgo’s recent adaptation of the well known childrens classic.
Their LIVE sound is impressive, full of variety and with plenty of audience interaction. Often described as ‘refreshingly different’, Landermason are equally at home entertaining audiences in folk and acoustic music clubs, theatres, festivals, village halls and pubs and are proud to have performed at some of the UK’s best known live music venues.
