Fiona Lander and Paul Mason collectively known as 'Landermason' have been writing, recording and performing together for ten years. Multi instrumentalist Fiona (vocals, piano, whistles, saxes, clarinet and recorder) and Paul (guitars 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 and striking arrangements.
Landermason have recorded and produced 4 CD's to date on their own label LAMA Records. Tracks from these albums have been featured on BBC 1 (Primetime TV), BBC Radio 2, 3 and 4 as well as on many other radio shows across the network.
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. They regularly tour around the UK and occasionally in Europe
"A stunning blend of diverse musical influences which captivated our audience from the very first few seconds, all the way to the sumptuous encore. Fiona and Paul are a great song-writing team, and deliver their unique music with such passion and style. What great imagination to present Brubeck on a penny whistle alongside haunting contemporary folk melodies and really fresh takes on some regional classics. The music was complimented by informative introductions and gentle humour to keep the audience totally engaged". - Steve Robson, Ireshopeburn Literary Institute (Live review)
