Formed in the early 90s by saxophonist Tim Garland (b. 19 October 1966, Ilford, Essex, England) and guitarist Don Paterson (b. 1963, Dundee, Scotland), Lammas built a repertoire that offered a smooth blend of contemporary jazz and haunting Celtic and Breton folk music. Throughout its decade-long life, the group attracted widespread attention, finding favour with jazz and folk audiences and was often lauded in the non-specialist media. Among musicians who from time to time worked with Paterson and Garland were trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, pianist Jason Rebello, singer Christine Tobin, percussionists Mark Fletcher, Roy Dodd and Nic France, accordionist Karen Street, and multi-instrumentalist Steafan Hannigan.
