Folk at the Maltings online concert on Friday April 16 at 8pm, will feature award winning young Scottish singer Iona Fyfe plus New Roots finalists Callum Granger and Oisin Kisdon-Ireland. It continues the series of concerts in which young performers who took part in New Roots 2020 join more experienced performers.
Aberdeenshire 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. She was the youngest ever winner of Scots Singer of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards 2018. 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.
With a number of high profile appearances under her belt, Iona has toured throughout the UK, Poland, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Canada and Australia.
Oisin Kisdon-Ireland is a second-year undergraduate on the Folk and Traditional Music course at Newcastle University, studying voice and whistle. He sings unaccompanied, and his repertoire is largely traditional.
Callum Granger is a London based singer songwriter. He grew up in a musical household in which he spent his early years absorbing all of the influences which are now evident in the songs he writes and performs, both as a solo artist and as half of the duo “Borders” whose repertoire spans contemporary folk, Americana and Roots with a twist of Blues.
