Artist Information & Contact Details


Andy Morgan - vocals, guitar, cittern, bouzouki, banjo, bodhran, bass
Viil Fjøse - vocals, guitar

are a roots music duo from Swansea. They combine original and traditional music inspired from the British Isles and Norway. The duo consists of Andy Morgan and Viil Fjøse, who have played together in their current format for about two years and their first album of original material is titled “The Call”. Stonecraft have developed a distinctive sound based around Andy and Viil’s vocals and the use of stringed instruments including 6 & 12 string guitar, cittern, tenor banjo, bouzouki and bass.

Andy Morgan - Guitar, bouzouki, cittern and vocals

Photo: Andy Morgan - Guitar, bouzouki, cittern and vocalsI was born just outside of Swansea in Gorseinon and have been playing guitar and singing since I was 16. My musical influences are completely varied from rock through to world music, but have found that the music I prefer to listen to now is by real musicians preferably by people I know. I formed and fronted the Celtic music duo, Burning Cell for 10 years.We played extensively around Wales and the West Country also had a long stay in Brittany, where we went to do one gig and ended up staying for 6 months. Whilst there, I played a lot around Northern Brittany, particularly Rennes, Dinard, Dinan and St. Malo. I also did two French tours with Burning Cell in 1996 & 1997. After taking a break from playing live for two years, I fronted with Viil the Alt Country band Ridgebacks. I then formed Stonecraft together with Viil in early summer 2005, and after Charlie joined in July, my music returned full circle back to the Celtic style with a bit of Bluegrass and Alt Country thrown in for good measure. Whilst not Stonecrafting I’m busy teaching classical and acoustic styles on the guitar.


Viil Fjøse - Vocals, guitar and harmonica

Photo: Viil Fjøse - Vocals, guitar and harmonicaI was born in Bergen, Norway where I developed a love for singing through being a member of various choirs. After leaving school in 1993, I studied music for a year with vocal as main instrument at Toneheim Folkehøyskole in Hamar, Norway. I moved to Swansea in 1997 and intended to stay for a year studying at Swansea University, the plans changed after meeting Andy and I haven’t left. After a number of years of trying out different choirs around Swansea Andy and I joined the Ridgebacks and gigged around Swansea. Although my vocal background was classical choir music, I have also been influenced by folk music all my life through family tradition.
