AN award-winning folk-singer whose music is rooted in the traditions of North East Scotland will be taking to the stage in Dunfermline.

Iona Fyfe, who has been described as "one of the best that Scotland has to offer", will be performing at PJ Molloys this month.

Having been named the Musician of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards in 2018, Iona is an advocate for the official recognition of the Scots language and led a campaign to have it added to Spotify's list of official languages.

The 24-year-old Aberdeenshire musician performs both folk and pop songs in Scots and was honoured at the 2021 Scots Language Awards with the title of Speaker of the Year.

Iona studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and graduated with a first-class honours degree in Traditional Music and holds an FLCM from London College of Music.

She has toured internationally and 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.

Her debut album, Away From My Window, was followed up by a 2019 EP, Dark Turn of the Mind, which was recorded entirely in English.

Iona will be playing at PJ Molloys on March 30 and tickets are available via TicketWeb.
