Meanwhile it has a few musical treats still to come from the Virtually St.Margaret’s Series starting with Iona Fyfe accompanied by Michael Biggins.

Singer, Iona Fyfe, has become one of Scotland’s finest young folk singers, rooted deeply in the singing traditions of the North East of Scotland.

The youngest ever winner of Scots Singer of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards 2018, Iona has been described as “one of the best Scotland has to offer.”

With a number of high profile appearances under her belt, Iona, a mere 22 years of age, has toured throughout the UK, Poland, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Canada and Australia.

Iona is a fierce advocate for the official recognition of the Scots Language and is a fine exponent of the Doric dialect, winning the title of Performer of the Year at the Scots Language Awards in 2020. She is a finalist in the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2021 award.

A nominee for Folk Band of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards, Iona has performed with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra as part of the World Premiere of Disney Pixar’s Brave in Concert at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

Released in 2019, Dark Turn of Mind is Iona’s first EP entirely in English and features six ballads and songs found in both Appalachia and Aberdeenshire and has been described as “a new interpretation to the country genre”.
