Jacob with Martin guitar

Hi, I’m Jacob Morrison, musician and instrumental teacher. I play a range of instruments including guitar, ukulele, banjo, and some piano & mandolin.


Music Projects

I’m co-founder, instrumentalist and co-songwriter of contemporary folk band FaelandFaeland’s debut album, All My Swim, has received glowing press from the likes of Uncut, Folk Radio UK and Shire Folk, who have hailed it as “Without doubt one of the albums of the year”. It’s also received support from the likes of Gideon Coe and Tom Robinson via BBC Radio 6 Music. You can listen to the album at faeland.bandcamp.com.

Other acts I have played with include eclectic 9-piece acoustic innovators Pindrop, Bristol trip-hop giants Ilya, Western Swing band Shinbone (featuring Edward Jay, Fiona Barrow, Paul Bradley & Stuart Barker), and a host of the Southwest’s top singer-songwriters including Emily Teague, Beccy Elder, Bex Baxter and Samantha Marais.
