Marc Higgins, FATEA

Innovative guitarist and Earth scientist linking geology and polar worlds to creative arts.

As well as live events I'm currently leading a 2024 Antarctic Musician in Residence programme, convening  a Geological Society of London event Earth’s Canvas - Exploring Geology in Creativity' and working on a book ‘A Suitable Stone' with the Cardozo Kindersley Workshop.

My music has been reviewed  positively by jazz, folk and roots radio stations and magazines across the UK. My solo electric guitar recordings Even Song, Discover and Endure &  The Song of the Ice re-imagine jazz, folk, rock and classical music. My acoustic duo with the double bass of Peter Lowit is featured on In Arden. During lockdown, singer Alex Fordham and I remotely built our  Songstring repertoire and I led the wonderful community project Our Living Rivers and Glens.

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.
