Marc Higgins, FATEA

Guitarist. Earth scientist. Born in London. Lived in the UK, Antarctica, USA & Canada. I call Scotland home.

I've had diverse musical experiences along the way, reflected my recordings The Song of the IceIn ArdenDiscover and Endure & Even Song which re-imagine jazz, folk, rock and classical music.

In addition to solo guitar performances, I am working in duos with the voice of Alex Fordham ('Songstring'), double bass of Peter Lowit ('The Boys from Aboyne') and spoken word of Frank Ribbons.

I have also helped to nurture community music initiatives such as the Bakersfield Jazz Workshop and Dee and Don Ceilidh Collective.

My work has been received well across jazz, folk and roots genres on radio stations and in magazines. Reviewers have heard echos of Grant Green, Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, Ralph Towner, Dean McPhee, Dick Gaughan & Steve Reich. You can see some of my other guitar heroes here.

To help avoid another case of mistaken internet identity, I'd like to clarify that  I am neither: Steve GarrettNashville-based singer songwriter, worship artist, pastor & speaker; Steve 'Static Major' Garrettrap star; 'Stainless' Steve GarrettCardiff-based social entrepreneur, writer, poet and musician with a long-standing interest in men's issues;  Steve Garrett: blues singer and guitarist featured on Netherlands radio; nor Steve GarrettGerman country and western singer.
