The Iona Fyfe Trio at the Ryburn Folk Club
March 27 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Songs from Aberdeenshire and beyond with fiddle, keyboards and guitar.
Young Aberdeenshire folksinger Iona Fyfe has already become one of Scotland’s finest young ballad singers, rooted deeply in the singing traditions of the North East of Scotland.
Iona was nominated as Scots Singer of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards 2017, was a finalist in the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, and was the winner of the Molloy Award at The Trip to Birmingham Irish Trad Fest 2017.
Her beautiful voice has been described “a testament to the strength, endurance and adaptability of the tradition.” (FolkWords). She was nominated for “One to Watch” and “Best Live Performance” at the Sunday Herald Scottish Culture Awards. In 2018, she performed at Interceltique Festival De Lorient where she was described as “a Scottish folksinger, magical and charismatic” (Rolling Stone, France)
“Away From My Window“, her debut album, 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. Her singing on the CD features archive material of singers such as Stanley Robertson and Lizzie Higgins whilst drawing on the work of more recent songmakers such as Michael Marra and Aidan Moffat .
Iona Fyfe is joined by County Durham singer and guitarist Luc McNally and Invernesian fiddler Charlie Grey in The Iona Fyfe Trio. Come and hear them for yourselves, you’ll be in for a delight.
