Welcome to Headscape

The website of musician James Griffiths
I'm an English guitarist living in Scotland, producing mainly instrumental pieces with a blend of progressive, celtic and ambient styles and a cinematic flavour.


In 2013/14 I completed a long-held ambition, to write a full album's worth of material inspired by a favourite book from my childhood - 'The Weirdstone of Brisingamen' by the acclaimed author Alan Garner.

Tracklist:
 
  • 'The Legend of Alderley' (Griffiths, Wilkinson)
  • 'The Edge' (Griffiths, Hansen)
  • 'The Fundindelve' (Griffiths)
  • 'Miching Mallecho' (Griffiths)
  • 'A Ring of Stones' (Griffiths, Hansen)
  • 'Mist Over Llyn-dhu' (Griffiths)
  • 'St Mary's Clyffe' (Griffiths)
  • 'Plankshaft' (Griffiths)
