Perhaps one of the reasons that Fields of Green has the power to instill calm, encourage reflection, gentle thought and well being is that these are all qualities shown and valued by ourselves. We also valued the opportunity to get together once again to perform and record this album. Thanks to all that played a part especially the folk at Cutting Edge Studios whose support really has made the most of the groups efforts.

And the newest addition, Oceans of Blue was created in Tarshito's solar powered studio with the gifted talent of local musicians including the talented vocals of Elen of Evolove and Chris James

Si Mullumby (didgeridoo)

DidgeSi is a talented musician who creates spirited tribal music using the traditional Australian aboriginal instrument, the didgeridoo, didjeridu, or didge.Si weaves the dynamic sounds of the didge through the rhythmic beats of tribal drums and lilting songs to create a contemporary, trance-like sound.Known for his unique techno style, Si believes the didgeridoo, known by the indigenous Australians as the "yidaki", is an instrument which opens the gateway to the Dreamtime, and connects us with the great spirit.

Rob is an expert harp player. First inspired by the music of Andreas Vollenweider, he later found the opportunity to make a harp with Andy Rigby of Castlemaine,Victoria, Australia.
