Biography
Michael Fields began his musical journey playing folk, rock and jazz in California.  Michael then turned his attention to classical guitar and piano and spent two years at the Melba Conservatorium in Melbourne, Australia.  A growing interest in “early” music led him to England in 1974 where he continued his studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, studying classical guitar with Hector Quine and lute with Anthony Rooley, Nigel North, Jakob Lindberg in England, and with Hopkinson Smith in Basel.  He received the AGSM and LRAM diplomas in 1977.

Michael combines his experience in music with a considerable knowledge of history, art, theatre and philosophy in a varied career – performing, directing, teaching and record-producing - which has taken him around the world several times.  As a soloist, Michael has given recitals in the USA, Australia and England, and performed the Vivaldi Lute Concerto on lute, classical guitar and baroque guitar.  He is a member of the US-based baroque ensemble, New Trinity Baroque. In 2001, he performed Rodrigo’s Concerto de Aranjuez with the Camden Chamber Orchestra in London, to mark the composer’s centenary.
