Asked for his all-time favourite advice received, folk-song crusader Sam Lee recalls his late artistic benefactor Stanley Robertson’s injunction – indicating ears then mouth – “You’ve got two of these, and one of those: use them in that proportion.” It’s a pearl that’s served Lee well, from Mercury-nominated debut LP to recent singing adventures with nightingales and Extinction Rebellion. Much-anticipated third album Old Wow, inspired by the power of nature, reimagines material initially sourced on his regular song-hunting quests. http://www.samleesong.co.uk

Iona Fyfe, has become one of Scotland’s finest young folk singers, rooted deeply in the singing traditions of the North East of Scotland. The youngest ever winner of Scots Singer of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards 2018, she has been described as “one of the best Scotland has to offer.” (Global-Music.de) A nominee for Folk Band of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards, Iona has toured throughout the UK, Europe, Canada and Australia. http://www.ionafyfe.com

Delighted that my 6-track release Dark Turn of Mind has made it into Folk Radio UK’s Albums of the Year list. Looking forward to 2020!

“This release will delight existing fans, and bring her music to an even wider audience. If you thought you’d heard the best of Iona Fyfe, think again; there’s every indication that Dark Turn of Mind begins a new, captivating chapter.”
