Fiona Hunter is considered by many to be the leading Scots Language singer of her generation. She began her singing career while completing her degree at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now Royal Conservatoire of Scotland), where she studied under the tutelage of highly revered singers Andy Hunter, Alison McMorland and Brian MacNeill.

Fiona undertook an internship at the illustrious Smithsonain Institute in Washington DC, home to decades of invaluable folklore study. Having developed a particular enthusiasm for the songs of the Scottish Traveling community, she has worked with members of the Perth-shire based Stewart family, learning her craft first-hand from the last tradition-bearers of this celebrated folksong dynasty.

Fiona has been singing as part of renowned 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.

2013 will see the release of Fiona's highly anticipated debut solo album, featuring songs from her native Glasgow and beyond.

Her band consists of some of the finest instrumentalists currently gracing the UK folk music scene, including Mike Vass, Matheu Watson, Euan Burton & Gillian Frame.
The band sound alternates between rhythmic and intricate flat picking guitar based work, and the rich harmonies of a string quintet such is the versatility of its multi instrumentalist members.
