Fiddle & Guitar fits perfectly what Ross Couper & Tom Oakes have been achieving with their live sets for almost a decade. Thoroughly enjoyable. Low, warm bass notes from Tom’s guitar lead the way for the album’s opening, as Allan MacDonald‘s pipe tune The Road To Loch Nam Bairneas, flows like a Strathspey from Ross’ fiddle. Soon the sedate pace starts to find a groove, and that fiddle becomes a muti-toned wonder, with deft flourishes and wayward harmonics as guitar knocks out an encouraging beat. That gentle opening grew from a bud of melody to an exotic bloom, with layers and textures to delight. Which is what Ross and Tom’s music is all about – simple tools to create beautiful things.
Fiddle Player from Shetland. Ross Couper & Tom Oakes. I'm really looking forward to playing this weekend at the Scots Fiddle Festival in Edinburgh with Ross Couper and Tom Oakes featuring Stuart Macpherson on double bass. Our gig is in the Queen's Hall on Sunday night and on after us is fiddle great, Frankie Gavin. It's going to be some night of tunes! Ross Couper Music.
In the Anderson High School in Lerwick he received lessons from his mother, a renowned fiddle teacher, Margaret Scollay. After Shetland he studied at Plockton Centre of Excellence for Traditional Music, the first Shetlander to do so. From there he went on to obtain a degree in Folk and Traditional Music at Newcastle University.
