Aberdeenshire folksinger Iona Fyfe has become one of Scotland’s finest young ballad singers, rooted deeply in the singing traditions of the North East of Scotland. At twenty-years-old, Iona has established a strong voicing of place in her repertoire and was nominated as Scots Singer of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards 2017. A finalist in the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, Iona has been described as “one of the best that Scotland has to offer.” (Global-Music.de) and was the winner of the Molloy Award at The Trip to Birmingham Irish Trad Fest 2017.

 

Iona’s voice has been described “a testament to the strength, endurance and adaptability of the tradition.” (FolkWords). The North East singer was nominated for “One to Watch” and “Best Live Performance” at the Sunday Herald Scottish Culture Awards. In 2018, Iona performed at Interceltique Festival De Lorient where she was described as “a Scottish folksinger, magical and charismatic” (Rolling Stone, France)

 

Her debut album Away From My Window was held to critical acclaim and received nationwide airplay on programmes such as BBC Radio 2 The Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio Scotland’s Travelling Folk, Take The Floor and BBC Radio Nan Gaidheal. Away From My Window features a stellar folk line-up of Luc McNally, Tim Edey, Charlie Grey, Simon Gall, Ross Miller Graham Rorie, David Foley, and Charlie Stewart. Branching out, Iona’s new EP, titled Dark Turn of Mind features six ballads and songs found in both Appalachia and Aberdeenshire and has been described as “a new interpretation to the country genre” – Maverick.
