Formed in the first 90s by saxophonist Tim Garland (b. 19 Oct 1966, Ilford, Essex, Britain) and guitarist Don Paterson (b. 1963, Dundee, Scotland), Lammas constructed a repertoire that provided a smooth mixture of modern jazz and haunting Celtic and Breton folk music. Throughout its decade-long lifestyle, the group seduced widespread attention, selecting favour with jazz and folk viewers and was frequently lauded in the nonspecialist media. Among music artists who every once in awhile caused Paterson and Garland had been trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, pianist Jason Rebello, vocalist Christine Tobin, percussionists Tag Fletcher, Roy Dodd and Nic France, accordionist Karen Road, and multi-instrumentalist Steafan Hannigan.
