The Big Blue
Fiona Finden: Fiddle / Vocal
Rue Porritt: Acoustic Bass / Vocal
Dan Ward: Percussion
Stuart Finden: Mandolin / Vocal
Fi & Stu Finden swap their horns for fiddle and mandolin respectively.
The Big Blue is a project in which they are joined by Rue Porritt, Jazz & Rock bassist
and singer, and Dan Ward percussion & drums with Whapweasel in a band that plays traditional and contemporary folk music.
The Big Blue was kicked off by Fi's presence as student of Folk & Traditional music at Newcastle University, exploring the musics of the British Isles with vocal & instrumental arrangement by the band.
Our experience of the driving horns and riffage of Whapweasel, (radio 2 folk award winners 2005), have informed the music of The Big Blue.
The music is an evolving expression of an evolving tradition.
