“Young folk singer Iona Fyfe grew up in Huntly, Aberdeeenshire, and this EP draws on the song tradition of northeast Scotland. Thoughtful instrumental accompaniment is provided by fiddle, guitars, double bass, pipes, piano, shruti box. Charlie Grey’s fiddle is particularly engaging.”
A few weeks ago we caught up with William Johnston from Simple Sounds who recorded a lovely video for us. Here we are playing Lovely Molly, also knwon as I Once was a Ploughboy. From the singing of Jeannie Robertson.
