Fiona Hunter is one of Scotland’s foremost traditional singers and is fast garnering a reputation as a highly gifted song interpreter. Fiona has been singing as part of renonwed folk song group Malinky for the best part of a decade. Her time with the group has seen them win many accolades including the prestigious Folk Band of the year award at the 2010 MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards. Fiona has also been twice nominated in the Scots Singer of the Year category at the awards and won Scots Singer of the Year in 2015. She will be joined on the night by some of the musicians who have played on her new album, including producer Mike Vass, Tom Gibbs and David Foley.

Dubbed "The Sex Pistols of folk,” (J Davis) they pay clear homage to the tradition whilst twisting old bones into something febrile and modern, with stomping tunes and captivating stories.
