We’re very pleased to welcome young Scottish performer Iona Fyfe to Ely Folk Festival. Iona is one of Scotland’s finest young ballad singers, rooted deeply in the singing traditions of the North East of Scotland. At the tender age of twenty, she has established a strong voicing of place in her repertoire and was a nominee for Scots Singer of the Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards. A finalist in the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2017, Iona has been described as “one of the best that Scotland has to offer.” Iona will be accompanied at Ely Folk Festival by a 3-piece band. Iona’s debut album Away From My Window will be released on 24th March 2018. We think that Iona Fyfe will go from strength to strength and is destined for great things.
